Reducing Waste

Make waste reduction and diverison a priority!

Thanks to your sustainable efforts, Surrey has seen a decline in the residential waste stream and an improvement in waste diversion since the early 1990s. Let's continue the trend and meet the region's 2020 goals of reducing even more waste contribuitions and recycling 80% of the region's waste!
