It is important in this business of recycling that people have access to information about what is recyclable and how to send recyclables on to a second life.
In the age of computers, there are a few more tools available.
Getting the word out can be very expensive. The Recycling Centre uses several that fit within its budget limitations.
A brochure with information is the oldest method. These will be available at the grocery stores in the next week.
Signs have been used for a very long time. Recycling information is on the stand out sign by the Armouries on Third Ave.
The web makes information available in the comfort of home or on a mobile device almost anywhere. The Recycling Centre recently updated its website www.flinflonrecycling.org. It also has a facebook page called Flin Flon Recycling. There are pictures on this page of the materials that are recyclable.
A simple phone call to 204 687 6169 will also provide any information that is needed.
The Recycling Centre will have a booth again this year at the Leisure Show.
This column is another source of information about recycling.
The local recycling program benefits from the billboards and radio and television advertising of the industry organizations that fund recycling. Remember the airplane made of aluminum cans?
The Multi Material Stewardship Manitoba (MMSM) has the Simply Recycle program. The Canadian Beverage Containers Recycling Association (CBCRA) has the Recycle Everywhere program which also provides free beverage container recycling bins for public places.
The Recycling Centre appreciates ideas and feedback. Please call the Centre at 204 687 6169, comment on the blog on the website or the facebook page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
