Rubbish Removal

Do you have products or items that are not accepted in the City's curbside waste collection programs? There are many safe alternative disposal options available!

Transfer Stations and Landfills

The City of White Rock does not have a large item pick up. Large household items for disposal can either be taken to a Waste Transfer Station for a fee or residents can contact a disposal company that will take items away for a fee.

There is no public drop off location available in White Rock or South Surrey for garbage, recycling or green waste. Residents, businesses and garbage collection contractors can bring their surplus waste to Waste Transfer Stations where it can be dropped off for a fee.

At these stations, garbage is screened for hazardous wastes and recyclable materials. For more information on transfer station locations, hours of operation, and rates, please visit Metro Vancouver Transfer Stations and Landfills Contact the stations directly for hours.

Community Clean-Up Projects

Metro Vancouver invites non-profit or volunteer groups to apply for a waiver of tipping fees for loads of garbage from community clean-up projects delivered to a Metro Vancouver disposal site. Metro Vancouver recognizes the important work of these groups in helping keep our communities clean and in protecting the environment.
