Collection Day

The pick-up day for Westwood is Wednesday of every week.

Proper positioning of the carts and waste items is important to ensure that your trash and recyclables will be picked up.  Please take note of these best practices:

  • Have your carts at the curb by 7:00 am on Wednesday. 
  • Ensure the arrows on the carts are pointing to the street, with the lid hinge toward your house.
  • Place carts within 3-feet of the curb. Please do not place carts in the street or block sidewalks.
  • Leave 3-feet of space between the cart and other objects such as utility poles, fire hydrants, trees, mailboxes, and parked cars.

Solid Waste (Trash) Disposal Guidelines

A 65-gallon cart is provided to each residence in Westwood for trash service.  Each residence is limited to 96 gallons of free trash pick up each week.

If you need a replacement cart or would like a smaller trash cart, Click Here to request one from WCA.  Cart exchanges are free, limited to an exchange per residence annually.

Trash that does not fit into the cart should be placed in trash bags no larger than 30-gallons in size.  WCA will collect one additional 30-gallon bag of solid waste that is not able to be placed in the 65-gallon cart at no additional cost each week.

Additional bags of trash beyond the 96-gallon limit will require the purchase of a $1.25 Bag Tag. These tags may be purchased at Westwood City Hall or at Hen House in Fairway.

Recycling Guidelines

Use the WCA recycle cart with a Blue lid for recycling services.

There is no limit on the amount of recycling that can be collected per residence per week. Additional materials for recycling that do not fit into the container may be placed in a paper bag or other contain marked "Recycling", and placed adjacent to the container provided.  No glass jars or glass bottles will be collected.
