Adopt-A-Street Volunteer Program

Show your civic pride!

The Adopt-A-Street program is a litter cleanup program that you can join to show your civic pride and make Surrey an even better community to live in. The program encourages businesses, community groups, schools, block clubs and other parts of the community to work together with the City of Surrey to help keep our environment clean and beautiful.

Your group can “adopt” a specific site or section of road, pledging to keep it free of trash and debris. As a participant, you'll work under the guidance of the Engineering Operations division.

We'll get you set up with Clean City information kits, including safety guidelines and basic litter pick up equipment. We will even acknowledge your volunteer group's efforts with a personalized Adopt-A-Street sign along your adopted street!

Ordering supplies

If your volunteer group requires more supplies, let us know by submitting a request. You can also email us at AASProgram@surrey.ca or reach us by phone at 604-590-7272.

Disposing of materials

To request collection of yellow bags that do not fit into your garbage cart or dumpster, or to report illegally dumped materials, make a request online, 24 hours a day using the Report a Problem graphic, or call the City of Surrey’s Service Request line at 604-591-4152.

Clean-up Reports

After you perform a clean-up make sure to submit a clean-up report to keep us up to date on your activity!

Recycling alternatives

Provincial Take-Back programs divert many products that are hazardous to the environment. For more information visit Rethink Waste Alternative Disposal and Recycling or call BC Recycling Hotline at 604-732-9253.

 

Returning Extra Supplies

If your two year commitment has ended and you are no longer willing or able to volunteer with the Adopt-A-Street Program please let us know so we can make your road section available for adoption again. We can also find a new home for any clean-up supplies that you no longer need. If you drop the supplies off at our location (Engineering Public Works Yard located at 6645 148 Street Mon-Fri 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM) we will be happy to find new uses for them. Together we can save resources and reduce waste!

Thank you for your support and for considering the environment!
