Waste Collection Services

The City of Surrey is dedicated to reducing waste by diverting as much material out of your garbage carts and away from landfills. We have developed a new waste collection calendar tool to find your waste collection calendar by your address. For mobile phone users, we also have a new Rethink Waste Mobile App.
