Residential Waste Collection

New Waste Containers

In late 2022 and early 2023, all residents in Westlake Village received new waste containers for trash and recyclables. Residents that did not previously have green containers also received new containers for organic waste. The new containers have a color scheme that is different from what has traditionally been used in Westlake Village. Containers with black or grey lids are for trash, blue lids are for recyclables, and green lids are for organic waste.

Waste Collection Agreement with Waste Management

On July 27, 2022, the City Council approved a waste collection agreement with Waste Management. Please visit the waste collection agreement page for additional information about the agreement and how it affects your waste rates and services.

Trash, Recyclables, and Organic Waste Collection

Westlake Village has an exclusive agreement with Waste Management to provide trash, recycling, and organic waste collection service for all residential customers. To start or stop collection service, or for questions about your bill or service, please contact Waste Management.

Holiday Collection

Waste collection service is not provided on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. When one of these holidays falls on a weekday, collection will be delayed one day for the remainder of the week. For example, if the holiday falls on a Thursday, Thursday service will be on Friday, and Friday service will be on Saturday. If a holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, there is no change to collection service.

Separating Waste

Residents are required by City ordinance and State law to separate trash into three separate containers provided by Waste Management: trash (grey or black lid), recyclables (blue lid), and organic waste (green lid).

In Westlake Village, organic waste can be placed in plastic bags, including biodegradable bags or regular plastic bags. Plastic bags are separated from organic waste at Waste Management's processing facility. (Please note that other communities may not allow organic waste to be placed in plastic bags.)

Bulky Items

Residents may request special pickups of furniture, appliances, bundled tree branches, and similar bulky items. Residents receive two pickups per year at no additional charge. Additional pickups are $25 per pickup. To schedule a bulky item pickup, contact Waste Management.

Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and electronic waste (e-waste) cannot be placed in the trash. There are various options for disposing of HHW and e-waste including curbside collection once per month. Please visit the HHW and e-waste page for more information.
