Residents are responsible for providing their own trash bags and containers.
Required containers: Plastic bags securely tied or metal or plastic containers with lids and lift handles. Maximum weight per bag or can is 50 pounds with a maximum container size of 32 gallons. Paper bags and cardboard boxes are not acceptable as containers and will not be collected. All trash must be drained, wrapped and placed in a waterproof container or tied bag. Neither the city nor Rumpke are responsible for damage to containers or lids.
Reminder: mattresses, box springs and upholstered furniture (couches, chairs, etc.) must be wrapped in plastic. Plastic bags/wrap can be purchased at local storage facilities or hardware stores. See our Heavy & Bulky Refuse page for a photo example.
The City of Westlake does not currently offer automated rubbish collection. If you are interested in leasing a 95-gallon trash cart (PDF), please contact Rumpke at 1-800-828-8171.
