Hanwell Garbage Collection by street

No change to Hanwell Mini Home Park garbage collection.

Regardless of when your collection day is, you are requested to have your trash to the road by 7:00am.  Pick up is between 7:00am and 7:oopm.

You may continue to use dolly-style garbage bins, however, the trucks are not equipped with lifters so garbage bags will be removed manually from the bins.  Please ensure your garbage bagged and securely tied.  No loose garbage will be picked up.

There are no special days set aside for spring and fall clean-up. You must contact BMI directly to make arrangements for large item (anything exceeding 44lbs) pick up such as large appliances, furniture and fixtures prior to placing them out on your pick up day.  Residents are limited to one item per month, to a maximum of nine (9) per year. 

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 trash and will not be composted.  So, if possible, please compost as much as you can in your backyard compost.  Ashes, grass clippings, incombustible material and street rubbish are not to be placed for collection. These must be disposed of at the owners expense.
