Curb side recycling potentially coming to Fort St. John

This comes after the city declined an opportunity to be a part of Multi-Material British Columbia (MMBC) recycling program, which officially kicks off in several BC communities near the end of the month.

“We talk about the resources we use’” Bolin said. “We talk about how the number one way to change is by conserving…This is it right here, what we’re looking at and have already identified as our number one priority.”

The Eco-Depot, a private recycling centre, currently serves approximately 600 residents with curb side recycling, leaving an estimated 6,800 households without this service.

The City of Fort St. John currently consumes one quarter of the packaging and printed paper (PPP) compared to the City of Prince George.
