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.
