The Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board

Most people in Surrey live safely, free from harm, abuse and neglect. However, some people have care and support needs that make it difficult for them to protect themselves. 

The Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) is a multi-agency partnership that helps to prevent the abuse and neglect of adults with care and support needs. The SSAB works with statutory, voluntary and other organisations to oversee and coordinate the adult safeguarding work across the county.


Don’t be a victim of online fraud

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the biggest online shopping events of the year, but this comes with the danger of online fraud. During peak online shopping periods, online fraudsters are more likely to take advantage of consumers by using fake e-mails, fraudulent websites or using unsecured information for identity fraud. 


Collecting and recycling your old rubbish bins

We are providing households in the district with a new black wheeled rubbish bin for their rubbish. When you receive your new bin, you can start using it straight away as we’ll only empty the new official council wheeled rubbish bin.

You can reuse your old wheelie bin or dustbin in many ways including turning it into a water butt or using it for storage in your garden, or it can be taken to either Caterham or Earlswood community recycling centres.

We’ve also arranged for old bins to be collected by our Street Cleaning team, at our bulky rubbish clearance weekends in December. 

At these weekends, residents can bring their empty bins to one of these locations and we’ll take them away and recycle them. If the bins have rubbish inside them, they won’t be taken away. 

The plastic rubbish bins will be made into plastic pellets, which are used to make other plastic items and the metal bins will be recycled to make new metal items.
