It Was Another Successful Year at the Recycling Center.



The Flin Flon Environment Council held their annual meeting Thursday night.  Recycling Center Administrator Deb Odegaard reported recycling tonnage increased by 11 percent last year achieving their third highest tonnage in their history.  She said there were 30 loads of material shipped along with 3 loads of e-waste.  Odegaard said her goal for this year is 500 metric tons which would be an 8 percent increase.  She said she continues the hear very positive things about the free curbside pick up in Creighton and the red bag curbside program in Flin Flon has seen some growth and is covering costs although she thought more residents would use it.  She adds significant increases in recycling need municipal actions such as charging for bags of garbage, banning cardboard at the landfill and changing dumpster rates to encourage recycling.


The Community Support Award was presented to Gardewine, the Community Champion Award to Judy Pettersen, the Employees 10 Year Service Award to Randy Whitmore and the Board Members Award to Angela Simpson.
