Garbage Preparation Tips

1) The Town of Hanna has a 3 bag per household allowance for garbage collection. Each household pays a bi-monthly fee for garbage collection (on your utility bill) which entitles you to collection of up to 3 bags of garbage per week. There is a standard sized bag limit (27" x 38"), at a cost of $17.00 bi-monthly. Industrial and commercial garbage is collected as contracted.
* A bimonthly fee of $33.00 is put towards our contribution to the operation of the Big Country Regional Waste Authority.

2) Garbage and waste must be drained and securely wrapped and properly tied.

3) Waste paper and cardboard must be tied in bundles and placed within or beside the garbage or waste receptacle for removal.

4) Clippings, lawn cuttings, shrubs and trees are to be compacted and securely tied in bundles, garbage cans or boxes and placed beside the waste receptacles. They cannot exceed 50 pounds (22.5kg) in weight or 1.5 meters (5 feet) in length.
