Surrey Pop-Up Junk Drop; Get Rid Of Your Trash For Free

Do you have too much junk in your trunk – or household?

If you want to do some summer cleaning, the City of Surrey has initiated a pop-up junk drop for anyone looking to get rid of those annoying items that don’t make the usual garbage cut.

The best part about the drop: it’s completely free!

Surrey taxpayers racked up nearly $1 million in cleaning up after illegal dumpers – that’s double the amount from the previous year.

So in an effort to help Surrey folks curb disposal costs, the Pop-Up Junk Drop will be available to all residents on multiple days.

Be sure to bring photo ID, though, since you will be required proof that you live in Surrey.

Here’s a breakdown of all acceptable drop-off items:

  • Furniture & Mattresses: Couches, chairs, mattresses, and other household furniture
  • Electronics: Computers, televisions, and other household electronics (will be recycled)
  • Small Appliances: vacuums, scales, countertop appliances, hair dryers, fans, irons, power tools, sewing machines, typewriters, exercise equipment
  • Appliances and Scrap Metal: Fridges, freezers, washers, dryers, and other large household appliances, scrap metal and bicycles (will be recycled)
  • Household Renovation Waste: Clean wood (no paint, stains, glues or chemical treatments), sinks, toilets, lumber (clean wood only), pallets that are unpainted, untreated and free of glue (the wood may be pierced with nails or metal fasteners such as screws or staples)
  • Other Household Items: Styrofoam, tires (please remove rims), mixed paper (including cardboard), printed paper, cardboard food packaging, mixed plastic (toys, household items, garden furniture, etc), gently used clothes (drop off bins), infant car seats
  • Lighting Products: light bulbs and tubes, lighting fixtures, lighting ballasts and transformers
