The Recycling Centre will be drawing for prizes for two events on Wednesday May 18.
1. 20 Minutes of Magic community cleanup is this Friday May 13. Any time before that day will also be fine. Register by calling 204 687 6169, or emailing email@example.com. Tell us which area you will be cleaning.
When you are finished, email a picture of the bags, or people in action. If you can’t send a picture, call and we will work something out. We will post pictures on our facebook page unless you tell us you don’t want them posted.
We need the names of everyone who helps out for the draws for several gift cards. Thanks to Coop, Eddies, Victoria Inn, Home Hardware and Subway for donating prizes.
Anyone who has cleaned up litter can still register by calling 204 687 6169.
2. If you didn’t complete the Recycling Survey at the Leisure Show, you still can. It will be at the Coop from 1:30 – 4:00 Wednesday, May 11 and from 10 – 4 on Saturday, May 14.
Everyone completing the survey is entered into the draw for a Samsung Tablet or a $100.00 Coop gift card.
If you want a survey and can’t make it to the Coop, request one by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .You will need to get it back to the Recycling Centre by May 18.
The tablet was a prize at a recycling conference in Winnipeg last fall. It was donated by EPRA Manitoba, the organization that supports electronics recycling. One of our Board members won it. She didn’t need it so donated it to the cause.
Winners will be posted on our facebook page, Flin Flon Recycling.
Update: The winner of the tablet is Linda Eryou. Hillary Scully won the $100.00 gift card. Their prizes were presented by Barb Lyons, Vice Chairperson of the Environment Council, and original winner of the tablet.
Thanks to all who participated. The information will be very helpful in promoting recycling in our community.
Results of the survey will be published in future columns.
