The Recycling Center has been operating the red bag curbside pickup program since 2010. The sale of the red bags pays for the cost of the pickup service.
When the program began pickups were every other Wednesday but to simplify it changes were made until in March of this year a six month pilot project began to provide curbside pickup in Flin Flon every Wednesday. Administrator Deb Odegaard says it’s time to review the project. She says it ends September 30th so they’re encouraging anyone who would plan to do it but haven’t started yet to get started so they can do a good assessment of where the project is actually going. She add they expect that it will continue but with some modification depending on how much of an increase they see noting there has been some increase but they want to get a good sense by the end of this month.
Odegaard reminds you recyclables can also be dropped off at the Recycling Center at 9 Timber Lane or the trailer in the vacant lot by Canadian Tire.
