The Flin Flon Environment Council held their annual meeting last night. Recycling Centre Administrator Deb Odegaard reported they recycled just over 463 tonnes last year up 21 tonnes from the year before. The increase was in part the result of the beginning of curbside pick up in Denare Beach. The Red Bag curbside program in Flin Flon averages 15 to 20 bags weekly and is covering costs and business pickups have a significant surplus that helps cover the cost of processing and shipping costs for cardboard as there is no subsidy for it. They also recycled just over 30 tonnes of electronics and 409 kilograms of household batteries. Odegaard noted the Hazardous Waste Depot at the landfill officially opened in September.
Odegaard presented the Curbside Service Provider in Creighton Award to Ray Gilfillan, the Curbside Service Provider in Denare Beach Award to John Moore and Kathy McGrath, the Employee Service Award to Dave Didyk and the Board Member Award to Barb Lyons.
