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 in the City. All waste is collected once per week.

To start or stop collection service, or for questions about your bill, please contact Waste Management directly at or 800-675-1171. Additional information is available on Waste Management's web site.

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 must separate trash into separate containers provided by Waste Management: trash, recyclables, and organic waste. Currently, Westlake Village residents should use the blue container for trash, black container for recyclables, and green container for organic waste.

Soon, WM will be rolling out new containers to all residents. The new containers will have a new color scheme as required by State law: grey for trash, blue for recyclables, and green for organic waste. When you receive new containers, you will receive an information sheet with the new color information. Until you receive new containers, please continue using the old color scheme of blue for trash and black for recyclables.

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 at 800-675-1171.

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.
