At the Flin Flon and District Environment Council annual meeting Administrator Deb Odegaard reported we recycled almost 396 tonnes last year up 16 tonnes from 2012 with a goal of 500 tonnes a year. Three shipments of ewaste were also sent out.
Odegaard says there have been changes. They now ship material to Winnipeg for sorting, Creighton has agreed to provide free curbside pick up starting May 1st, all red bag pick up in Flin Flon will change to every second week starting April 30th, they have purchased a recycling trailer to be placed at a convenient location in Flin Flon and are now doing dry cell battery recycling.
The meeting also honored the late Darrel Nomeland who had been a dedicated volunteer at the Center.
Odegaard presented two awards, a 15 year dedicated service award to Rhonda Lowe and a community support award to the North of 53 Consumers Co-op received by their Board President Dave Kendall.
