Two women from the lower mainland will be in Fort St. John this weekend, to spread the word about oil material recycling.

Kalina Hadziev and Laura-Leigh McKenzie will be arriving in the city on Saturday, in a hybrid car dubbed, “Bubbles.”

Hadziev says she and McKenzie are visiting local oil collection facilities and are educating the public on the importance of proper recycling of oil materials.

It’s all part of the B.C. Used Oil Summer Ambassador program, a province-wide communications campaign from the B.C. Used Oil Management Association.

The pair started their travels in Burnaby, and after visiting the Energetic City, they will be travelling up to Fort Nelson. Their adventure ends in Vancouver, just in time for the two 21 year-olds to return to University.

They started on June 1st, and will have been on the road for 13 weeks.

Meanwhile, Hadziev says there are nine locations in Fort St. John to recycle used oil, filters or oil products. She says residents in the North don’t seem to take their natural surroundings for granted.
