2024 Updates: Next Holiday is Good Friday on Friday March 29th

Westland Trash Schedule 2024 (Bulk Pickup, Holidays, Map)

We’re here to help you find the Westland trash pickup schedule for 2024 including bulk pickup, recycling, holidays, and maps.

The City of Westland is in Michigan with Plymouth and Livonia to the north, Romulus to the south, Detroit to the east, and Canton to the west.

If there’s a change to your normal trash collection schedule then there’s a good chance your street sweeping schedule has changed too so make sure to check for updates.

Trash Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

  • Memorial Day
  • JIndependence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Day

If trash collection days fall within a holiday business week, the trash collection will be delayed by one day, on or after the holiday, for the rest of that week.

For example, Labor Day is a Monday so all trash pickup will be delayed for that week but Thanksgiving is a Thursday so only Thursday and Friday (the rest of the week) will be delayed.  Another example is if Christmas Day officially falls on a Sunday, but is observed by the City on Monday, all trash pickup would not be impacted since the actual holiday is on a weekend, not during the business week.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Westland and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
