Individual Litter Cleanup (All Ages) - Individual Litter Cleanup sign up


The Individual Litter Cleanup is a self-led volunteer opportunity that challenges you to clean up your community independently. You can do it with your friends, family, or others, but make sure to follow safety guidelines and nature etiquette. You can make a positive impact and join the many others working to keep Surrey clean and beautiful!

All registered volunteers will receive a vest, litter picker, bags, and safety/nature guidelines to help your clean up efforts.

Let’s create amazing neighbourhoods together!
