* Co-mingled is unsorted materials sent to Winnipeg for sorting.
The numbers were a little lower in October but still over 40 tonnes which is great. Crunching the numbers, the increase is still in cardboard and office paper. We need to get the co-mingle numbers up as that would indicate that more homes are recycling.
If you have any ideas about how to do that, please let us know.
