The Flin Flon Recycling Center is coordinating the Twenty Minutes of Magic community clean-up campaign next week. Their Administrator Deb Odegaard explains they’re asking people just to take 20 minutes or so out of their day to find an area of town that needs some cleaning up and they can get clear bags and garbage bags and cans and bottles go in the clear bags and the garbage goes in the other bags and they report where they’re going to leave them and they will be picked up.
Registration forms are available at grocery stores, by emailing email@example.com or phoning 204-687-6169. People who register will receive recycling and garbage bags, gloves and t-shirts while the supply lasts.
Odegaard adds the clean up takes place Friday the 22nd but you can participate on a different day that week by indicating it on the registration form. There are two draws for 100 dollar grocery gift cards and a random draw from all northern communities taking part for 5 thousand dollars towards a recycling project.
