Residents are responsible for providing their own trash bags and containers. Containers can be plastic bags or metal or plastic cans designed for trash collection. Maximum weight may not exceed 50 pounds and be no larger than 32 gallons in size. Paper bags and cardboard boxes are not acceptable as rubbish containers and will not be collected. 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 for health reasons. 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 offer automated rubbish collection. If you are interested in renting a 95-gallon trash cart (PDF), please contact Rumpke at 800-828-8171.
