Big Bin Events record 50,000th visits
On Sepember 12, 2010 Councillor Bryan Anderson was at the Millwoods Town Centre Big Bin Event to welcome and celebrate the 50,000th customer to the hugely popular community events.
"Edmontonians take great pride in our city and we don't want to see our river valley and roadways being used as places to dispose of unwanted things," he said. "Big Bin events make it easy for Edmontonians to get rid of large bulky items and are an important part of keeping our city clean."
Since the events began in 2006, they have collected over 8000 tonnes of waste, the equivalent of 600 Edmonton Transit Service buses.
