The Recycling Center is once again asking everyone living outside of Flin Flon and Creighton to contribute to the cost of processing recyclables in our community. Administrator Deb Odegaard says the Center is dependent on these fees to support the operation of the Center. She explains people living in Flin Flon and Creighton help cover the cost of recycling through grants that the City of Flin Flon and Town of Creighton pay to them but people living in Denare Beach and the Lakes have equal access to the recycling service and they don’t receive any money on their behalf to cover their recycling costs so for the past three years they’ve asked individuals to contribute to help cover the cost and quite a few people have done that. She adds the rate is based in the same way the grants from the City of Flin Flon and Town of Creighton are calculated at $11.40 per person.
Fees can be dropped off at the Center at 9 Timber Lane or mailed to Box 392 in Flin Flon. Denare Beach residents will be voting on whether to join the recycling program in this fall’s election.
