Garbage & Recycling


Waste disposal is currently contracted to Fero Waste & Recycling Inc. Most areas in Hanwell have a Tuesday pick-up day; however, Fero has a Wednesday pick up for the following areas:

  • Deerwood Drive and all points to the intersection of the City line.
  • From Deerwood Drive heading southwest on Route#640 and all points along Route 640
  • Including Smith Road and all points heading southwest to the LSD of Manners Sutton parish line with the last collection address being #4128 Route 640
  • Points along Mazerolle Settlement Road from Route 640 to just before Slipp Drive

You are requested to have your refuse to the road by 7:00 a.m.

There are no special days set aside for spring and fall clean-up. You may put out large appliances and furniture on your regular pick-up day, providing you contact Fero  to make arrangements at 472-3376.   You are limited to one item per month, to a maximum of nine (9) per year. 

The exception to this is any item that contains Freon such as refrigerators, freezers coolers, dehumidifiers, etc. These items will be picked up as well but Fero must be contacted ahead of time as special arrangements need to be made for their disposal. You can contact Fero at 506-472-3376.

Please note that the contractor will not pick up construction materials (lumber, drywall, etc.) or automotive parts and tires. Please see the Solid Waste Disposal By-Law for appropriate materials and sizes.

Also note that in the rural community we do not have specific leaf pick-ups; however they will be collected with the regular garbage pick-up if they are bagged properly (max. of 5 bags per pick-up). The leaves will be disposed of with the regular refuse and will not be composted. So, if possible, please compost as much as you can in your backyard compost.

Note:  DO NOT place ashes in trash, as this can cause dangerous results.


New for 2019:  We have two recycling pick-ups per month, on the first and third Friday of each month.

You are requested to have your recycling to the road by 7 a.m.

The dates are:
