As of Oct. 1, Surrey will be using the new waste system. Most of us ended up with new waste cans; not too long after they delivered the wrong sizes, and a lot us had to return the waste cans to the street again.
I was looking in the booklet for the waste system and what caught my attention was where you were to place your waste cans. There is a height restriction of 10 feet and the booklet says to trim the trees. Most of the streets where the waste cans will end up for pick-up days is where City of Surrey have been placed on residents’ properties and are overgrown. They say we cannot trim the city trees, and in the booklet they say you need to trim the trees away from where the waste will be picked up.
There are a lot of city trees that need to be trimmed, and Surrey has not kept up. Either they need to start getting a move on before October, or lots of residents will be placing their waste cans in the middle of the road away from the trees.
