Rufus Fruge, 34, gathers recyclables on Garth Street for one of two new pilot collection routes Friday morning, Oct. 1, 2010. Layli Terrill, the waste minimization supervisor, says the pilot routes are experiments to see if reusable recycling containers are efficient or not. "It's been extremely successful. We have a lot of recycling in these areas that we didn’t see before," Terrill said.
