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.
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.
