COVID-19 and Protecting our Waste Collection Workers
Waste Collection Services in Surrey continue as scheduled. As a precaution for the health and safety of waste collection workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that you please:
- Dispose of used personal hygiene products, wipes, face masks and gloves in your garbage cart.
- Securely tie garbage bags shut and place in your garbage cart on your regular collection day.
- If you’re sick or caring for someone who is sick, double bag all personal waste in plastic garbage bags.
- Do not approach our waste collection drivers.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Zero Waste Strategy
Recognizing the growing importance of addressing the impact of greenhouse gases and excess waste, the City of Surrey is taking action and developing a Zero Waste Strategy.
In August 2020, we surveyed 2,500 residents and then developed a list of program options to help Surrey residents divert and reduce their waste.
Single-Use Item Reduction Strategy
Surrey is working towards a plastic shopping bag ban as part of our larger Single-Use Item Reduction Strategy. Over 1.1 billion single-use items are disposed of in the Metro Vancouver region each year. We are taking steps to drastically reduce this number.
We are joining all levels of government as we undertake initiatives focused on managing single-use items.
