The year end totals are in for last year at the Flin Flon Recycling Center. Administrator Deb Odegaard says it was another successful year. She explains they bailed about 463 metric tonnes of material which is 21 tonnes more than last year adding the year before they were higher but they’re still 3 ahead of even 2015 so that’s good news as it’s the third highest tonnage in their history. She adds they also recycled 30 metric tonnes of electronics and 409 kilograms of batteries and they’ve been shipping out quite a few fluorescent bulbs but she forgot to keep track of those so hopefully next year they’ll have exact numbers on that.
