Trash and Recycling Calendar


  • Waste Management picks up trash every week. Recycling is picked up every other week, on a designated blue or green week. Each recycling barrel has either a blue top (blue week) or a green top (green week).
  • Damaged or Lost Barrels? The barrels provided are the property of the Town of Westwood and will be repaired or replaced if the damage is from the trash contractor. If the barrel is damaged as a result of neglect, or if the cart is missing or lost, the resident will be responsible for the replacement cost. If you are moving, you must leave the barrels for the new homeowner. Please call the DPW office at 781-251-2587 for additional information.
  • Would like to request an additional Trash Barrel? You may rent a second trash barrel for $150 per year by calling the Westwood Public Works at (781)-251-2587. Requests for additional trash barrels will only be accepted from May through November
