Waste-collecting cyclists put a new spin on recyclingShannon Moneo A street peddler of a different kind, Darren Douglas rides a $4,000, custom-built tricycle through the city’s downtown, picking up odour-emitting organic waste from businesses that is later converted into compost. The zero-emission service, called reCYCLISTS, is the ultimate in green recycling. At a recent stop, the 48-litre green bin he carried out was heavy and “nasty-smelling.” That was now behind him as he once again headed out on the road, deftly and quietly navigating Government Street. In front of him though, he faced diesel fumes from trucks and the rumble of other motor vehicles.ReCYCLISTS is the green vision of two trash-talking men, Aaron Bichard, 34, and Jason Adams, 36.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
REFUSE RESOURCE RECOVERY SET TO CELEBRATE 10TH ANNIVERSARYIt seems like Jason Adams was born to recycle. As part of a business degree at UVic back in the nineties, Adams offset the cost of his education by making three to four trips to the landfill a day when he helped bring “The Rubbish Boys” to Victoria. They went on to become 1-800-GOT-JUNK? He went on to a job with Penner Recycling and pioneered paper recycling from Victoria offices.
reFUSE Resource Recovery has been recognized with the 2006 Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for Environmental Leadership.
