Keep our streets clean
We have a problem in Surrey.
Littering and dumping in the streets is getting out of control. This situation is a waste of taxpayers’ money and resources.
There is no reason for people to throw cups, boxes, papers, cans, wrappers etc. on the street.
We need to educate people to show respect. Where do they think that garbage will go? What will happen to it? It will not disappear.
We must keep streets clean and pick up litter in front and around our homes.
Regarding the disposal of large items (tires, sofas, toilets, TVs, etc.), there is no need to dump them on the street, parking lots, schools and parks. That is illegal and subject to fines. The City of Surrey offers a free pick-up service.
For free pick-up of large items, call 604-590-7289 (then, hit option 3), or Progressive Waste at 604-636-3024.
