Rubbish

Rubbish is collected by Rumpke Waste and Recycling. For questions or concerns, contact Rumpke at 1-800-828-8171. If you are unsure of your regular collection day, please check the Recycling and Rubbish Routes to find out. 


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.

Trash Carts


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.
