Surrey Solid Waste Facility Naming Options

Metro Vancouver is considering names for two new solid waste facilities in Coquitlam and Surrey, expected to open in 2021, and is reviewing the names of current solid waste facilities that it owns and operates across the region. The goal is to choose names that truly describe the scope of services available at the facilities, are easy to remember, and provide information on the facility’s location.

This survey aims to collect feedback from City of Surrey staff on facility naming options for the new recycling and waste drop-off facility in Surrey, as well as the term used to describe Metro Vancouver's solid waste facilities.

Currently, the term “transfer station” is used to describe Metro Vancouver’s solid waste facilities where residents, businesses, and collection contractors drop off garbage, yard trimmings and recyclable materials.
