It is amazing how much stuff accumulates over time in our homes, especially if we have lots of space and stay in the same place for many years.
At some point much of that stuff needs to be gotten rid of. This often happens when people move especially to a smaller home or when an estate need to be taken care of.
The responsible thing to do is to sell, give away or send reusable items to second hand stores and to recycle as much as possible.
It is very important that only items that can be sold or recycled are dropped off at the stores or the Recycling Centre. Taking unsuitable items to these places creates a lot of extra work and garbage.
The Recycling Centre will take old magazines, papers and books as long as they are not too damp, musty smelling or moldy. Glass bottles and jars, plastic containers and cardboard can also be recycled.
Please be careful that personal information like social insurance and credit card numbers is removed or shredded. All shredded paper must be in a separate bag.
The Recycling Centre also recycles electronics including computers and all related items, sound systems, televisions, telephones. Microwaves are the only recyclable appliance. Paint and paint cans are also accepted.
All hazardous items like pesticides and cleaners with the hazardous symbols should be taken to the Flin Flon Landfill.
Some of the things which are not recyclable are Cd’s, DVD’s, photographs and photo albums, dishes, pots and pans, and clothing.
We appreciate the desire to do the right thing when cleaning up. Please check the list of recyclables on website at flinflonrecycling.org or call us at (204) 687-6169.
