The tasks on Monday covered the variety of things the Recycling Centre does to take care of things people no longer need in a responsible way.
The books were packed in the box for shipping.
An email was sent to begin the process of shipping a semi-trailer of electronics for recycling.
The beer cans were counted and bagged. The bottles were sorted into flats of 24.
The printer cartridges were stacked on a pallet and wrapped for shipping.
Another email was sent requesting a load number so a semi-trailer load of tires can be shipped from the landfill this week.
The batteries were waiting to be packed in the box and sent for recycling.
There were enough four foot fluorescent tubes to fill a couple of boxes for shipping. Four more eight foot tubes arrived and were packed in the longer box.
Used oil and containers that had been left at the Recycling Centre instead of taken to the landfill were picked up.
A caller was informed that the Household Hazardous waste depot is open every day at the Flin Flon Landfill and that information brochures are at City Hall.
The trailer from Canadian Tire was emptied at the Centre.
The usual activities of clearing recyclables from the dock, picking up recyclables from businesses and baling materials for shipping happened.
Three bales of comingled materials and one of cardboard were finished. Another cardboard bale was started. A bale of cardboard arrived from the Coop.
It is great the Recycling Centre is able to provide the services needed so homes and businesses in our community can make a difference by recycling.
Thank you to our employees and everyone who makes it happen.
