Examples of accepted recyclable materials include metals, cardboard, lumber, mattresses and yard trimmings. Small amounts of garbage from residential and small business clean-ups and renovation projects would also be accepted.</p><p>This convenient drop-off facility would encourage recycling and waste reduction, reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions and decrease illegal dumping in Surrey. The facility is expected to be open seven days a week and serve an average 600 customers per day by 2030.</p><p>More information can be found <a href="/services/solid-waste/engagement/surrey-drop-off/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">here</a>.</p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue44-surrey.jpg2018-06-29T07:00:00ZGP0|#608033f6-67b5-46c2-9f78-c51d935d0a07;L0|#0608033f6-67b5-46c2-9f78-c51d935d0a07|Issue 44;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass70D75534DC8548D4ACC1DDD7F0CBEB89"><p>​Metro Vancouver and the City of Surrey have begun engaging with the public on a new recycling and solid waste drop-off facility for small loads in Surrey, as part of the city’s rezoning and development permit application process.</p></div>0
