SARCAN RECYCLING

The new recycling fee added to milk purchases, has created a huge impact on our budget.  If you would like to help us out with recouping some of the recycle fees, we have now set up an account with Stop, Drop and Go at SARCAN.  You can drop off milk containers, or any other recycling at SARCAN's drop centres.   All you need to do is enter our user name:             306-565-8632 (our phone number), and the drop off code: rffl  (all small letters).  Please note this is a new user name and drop off code. Enter the number of bags you have and the machine will print out the appropriate number of stickers.  Put the stickers on your bags and leave them on the conveyer.  Very easy. The recycling refund will go directly to Regina Food For Learning.  This will make a significant contribution to our ability to continue supplying quality products to our programs.  Thank you for your support.
