The Downtown Victoria Business Association partners with reCYCLISTS for composting pick-up

reCYCLISTS is a bicycle-based compost program offering an environmentally friendly, pollutant-free compost collection service for downtown businesses. Because downtown businesses can be serviced with pedal power, our partnership with reCYCLISTS can provide our membership with compost pick up at sustainable rates.

reCYCLISTS will provide regularly scheduled compost pick up for businesses within the boundaries of the DVBA using a specially designed and distinctively branded pedal-powered tricycle piloted by members of the DVBA Clean Team. This specialized reCYCLISTS trike will carry close to 200 kilograms of compost per load and will pick up from participating businesses on a regular schedule. Participating businesses will be provided with a small table top container and a large 48 litre container.

The compost is beneficially recycled into a natural medium that directly supports pesticide-free gardening, water conservation and greenhouse gas reduction. The reCYCLISTS program officially begun on Tuesday, September 21st, and is currently an exclusive offer to businesses within the DVBA boundaries.
