Collection Schedule & Waste Diversion Calendars

Collection Schedule

The City of Surrey provides fully automated waste collection services to Surrey residents, using a three-cart system. To help make the most of our waste diversion plan, the City’s collection schedule was designed in a way that will maximize the amount of organics that we divert from the garbage stream.

We collect your:

  • Organics cart: every week
  • Recyclables cart: every other week, alternating with garbage collection
  • Garbage cart: every other week, alternating with recyclables collection
