Providing accurate information about recycling is ongoing in a variety of ways.
This Recycling Bin column has been sharing news and information since 2014.
Accuracy is important so a clarification about last week’s column is needed.
The column outlined the pros and cons of the different ways recyclables get to the Recycling Centre. The last sentence ‘It is not an easy decision’ implied decisions are being made regarding this issue in Flin Flon.
This is not the case. A more accurate conclusion would be ’It is not obvious which is best’.
There are several other ways information is shared with the community.
The sign beside Hapnot has had messages since 2013. It is an interesting challenging to find the right words for the message in the space available.
The internet is a popular place to find information. The Flin Flon Recycling Facebook group was started in 2013 to provide updates, information about recycling and waste reduction and to get feedback from recyclers. Pictures of recyclable items are pinned at the top of the page.
Our website www.flinflonrecycling.org was redone in 2015 with ongoing improvements and additions. There is information about what is and is not recyclable. Monthly statistics are posted in the News section.
In recent years we have run thirty second ads on CFAR radio. We also discuss recycling issues on the Morning show on a regular basis.
The most fun promotion is the booth at the Leisure Show at the end of April. We will be there again this year.
The quickest, easiest way to get information is to give us a call at (204)687-6169 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love to answer your questions.
