It is always a balancing act.
We want to make recycling as easy as possible, and there are things recyclers can do to make our job at the Recycling Centre easier.
If you need recycling to be simple, please continue to put everything in a bag or box and bring it to the Centre or the trailer, or set it out for pick up if you live in Creighton or Denare Beach.
Please make sure everything is recyclable. Check the list with pictures at www.flinflonrecycling.org or on the Flin Flon Recycling Facebook page.
Shredded paper and batteries need to be in separate bags that can go in with your other recyclables.
Nothing should be drippy, sticky or gooey. Empty/drain all bottles.
If your recyclables are not in a closed box or bag or you need to keep your bin, please put them in the blue bins at the Recycling Centre. There should be no loose material in the trailer by Canadian Tire.
If you are willing to do a little extra to help us out, here are some suggestions.
- Remove lids from glass and put it in a separate bag. It can still go in with the rest of your recyclables.
- Put all aluminum cans in a separate bag too. We are now separating aluminum to sell for a good price while cardboard prices have fallen dramatically.
- A separate bag for white (#2HDPE) and orange or green (#5PP) pill bottles helps. Please remove the lids and anything inside.
- Remove all packing materials including Styrofoam and plastic from cardboard boxes. Paper and fibre packing can be recycled.
