It has never been easier to recycle!
Here are the basics.
- Recyclables go in one recycling bin, garbage goes in the other. No sorting is required. The only exceptions are shredded paper and household batteries. They should be in closed separate bags. These smaller bags can go in the bag of recyclables.
- If it’s on the list it’s recyclable. If not, it’s garbage. A list is available on our website www.flinflonrecycling.org. There are pictures on our facebook page: Flin Flon Recycling. If you are not sure, call the Recycling Centre at 204 687 6169, email email@example.com, or post a question on the facebook page.
- Recyclables can be picked up at your home.
Wednesday is Red bag curbside pickup in Flin Flon. One red bag must be purchased for $3.50 to pay for the service. Two more bags or boxes will be picked up. Check the website for a list of the streets served. Streets can be added by calling the Centre at 204 687 6169.
Large cardboard boxes do not need to be in bags. They should be flattened and placed under the bags.
4. Recyclables can be left at the Centre at 9 Timber Lane or in the green trailer parked between Canadian Tire and Walmart. All recyclables should be in closed bags or boxes. Loose materials should be placed in the blue bins at the Recycling Centre.
Recycling saves energy, resources and landfill space and costs.
The little extra effort is worth it.
