Trash & Recycling
Effective 1 January 2018, Republic Services is responsible for trash and recycling pick-up in Westhaven. Trash pick-up days are Tuesdays and Fridays. Recycling is picked up once a week, on Friday.
RECYCLABLE ITEMS, INCLUDING CARDBOARD BOXES, WILL NOT BE PICKED UP ON MONDAY. DO NOT PUT THOSE ITEMS AT THE CURB UNTIL FRIDAY.
Place your items at the curb after 7:00 p.m. the night before, or no later than 6:00 am the day of pick-up. If you place your garbage out too late (after 7:00 am) and it is not picked up, you must take it back in until the next pick-up. All trash and recycle bins should be stored in your garage or backyard on non-pick-up days. Please do not block the mailboxes with trash and/or recycling containers.
Trash and garbage must be in either a sealed trash can or a dark (not clear or white) plastic bag. Cardboard boxes may be set at the curb. You must arrange separately, in advance, with Republic Services for disposal of large items such as furniture and appliances. Call their customer service at 703.818.8222 .
