Retiring the bins

AiMHi is moving forward with a new approach to the community collection bins. We place value on the feedback from the community and feel we are now a leader in a new, safer collection approach.

AiMHi has now opened an Attended Donation Station at 1000 First Ave. The public will be able to drop off their donations at the Attended Donation Station Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and be met by a trainer or a person in training.

AiMHi has now removed all large collection bins previously in the community and these will not be going back into service. We have started placing new inside donation cages in participating local businesses around the Prince George area. These smaller open cages are designed to assist the public with alternate places to donate their recycled goods. The Prince George community has been vocal about safer alternatives and needed change for the collection of products. AiMHi feels these new collection methods will meet the expectations set by the community and are a viable alternative to outside collection bins. AiMHi is proud to be a leader and we feel the community recognizes the value in this sort of collection and ensuring items do not go to the landfill unnecessarily.

We value the donations that are provided by our community to support AiMHi in our fundraising efforts and partnership with Value Village. AiMHi is also very proud of the fact that while we provide this service we also include this valuable resource as an opportunity to train people through this partnership. We have people who are paid, training on the truck during pickups and drop offs, as well as people in the office greeting the public while accepting donations and making calls to inform the public. Many of these people, upon completion of the training program, find employment within our community using the skills they have learned through this partnership program. We would like to ask for your support by placing one of these new wire bin systems inside your place of business.

Please feel free to contact the Attended Donation Station at 250-564-9402 for further information.

AiMHi thanks the community for their ongoing support through this exciting new transition.
