Eco-Depot says curbside recycling a success

Advertisement

More than 150 additional people have signed up for the Eco-Depot’s city-wide curbside recycling collection.

The Eco-Depot expanded its recycling program on July 1st. It now offers the service for everyone with curbside garbage collection.

General Manager Lindsay Heal says she knew the program would be successful when it kicked off its three-month pilot project in October 2008.

Now, recycling is collected on a bi-weekly basis, on the same day as garbage collection.

The cost for participants is 15 dollars a month for a three month subscription, or 12 dollars a month for a six month or one year subscription.

She says Fort St. John recycles only about 10 per cent of its garbage. But, Heal says that number could increase if recycling becomes easier and more convenient for everyone.

Heal says the curbside recycling collection is here to stay.
