The Flin Flon and District Environment Council has announced beginning next Wednesday the Red Bag recycling pick up from Flin Flon homes is changing. Recycling Center Administrator Deb Odegaard explains they’re changing the schedule so that every Wednesday will be Red Bag recycling week and people won’t have to worry about whether it’s the correct week or not. She says they’re doing it to make it less confusing and also to make it easier for everybody to recycle and hopefully to encourage more people to get into the habit.
Red bags are sold for $3.50 which pays for the service and they can be purchased at the Gas Bar, Acklands, Super K, Dollar Store, Pharmasave and the Recycling Center. Two more bags or boxes will be picked up with each red bag and large cardboard should be flattened and placed under the bags. More information on recycling can be found at grocery stores, online at www.flinflonrecycling.org, on their facebook page or call 204-687-6169.
