October 2nd marks the first day for pickup for Fort St. John’s new curbside recycling pilot project. Lindsay Heal of Eco-Depot, the company in charge of the pilot project, says that a flurry of last minute sign-ups have brought the total number of participating households to 75, up from only 12 a few weeks ago. Heal also says she’s hoping that more people will sign up for the service after they see their neighbour’s blue bags on the curb. The company hopes to see at least 25 more households sign up for the service in the coming weeks. At this point, the pilot project is only for homes on 108th Avenue and north, but after three months Eco Depot will be assessing the results of the project to determine its feasibility as a city-wide service.
