Surrey– Mayor Doug McCallum launched the City of Surrey’s Love Where You Live campaign which calls for residents, business owners, schools, and community groups to do their part in keeping Surrey clean and beautiful.  

“Everyday, and especially during this new initiative, we are calling on everyone to participate in keeping the street where you live, and the parks where our children play, clean and welcoming,” said Mayor Doug McCallum.

“No effort is too small, and it starts with the street you work or call home. I challenge everyone to take 20 minutes out of your day, once a week, to clean up your property and the space around it.”

With a series of community events, challenging residents to get involved in cleaning up streets, parks and town centres, Love Where You Live expands on existing initiatives from now until October 30. The City will be increasing services during this time, including litter, dumping and graffiti removal. Several beautification projects are also taking place, including increased decorative street lighting, and the installation of street banners representing each town centre, which aim to increase civic pride.
