Since October of 2018, Calgarians have been living in a post-marijuana prohibition world. The momentum of cannabis legalization, a lengthy and tedious process, has led to retail shops popping up across the city, but there is still much to be understood about the city’s marijuana marketplace.
Even though Calgarians can put their recyclables in their blue bin for pickup, they still have to bring their bottles and cans to a depot to get their initial deposits back. That is, until now.
With the emergence of the app Skip the Depot, people now have the option to have their recyclables picked up and receive fair payment in return.
