Our Garbage is Dropping
Since October 2012, our new Rethink Waste Collection Program has been helping us reach the 70% regional waste diversion target by 2015. Early results of the program have been very promising. In the first three months of collection, Surrey’s residential garbage tonnage dropped by 43%, with a corresponding increase in organic waste diversion.
Your commitment towards waste diversion is making a huge impact on our environment. Your participation has been so great that we’re now well ahead of initial targets and on pace to reducing garbage by 50% sooner than expected! With this momentum, we are on track to making Surrey a world class leader in waste diversion. Thank You Surrey Residents! Cleaner Air
