Brampton has more than 89,000 acres of parkland, over 850 parks, and 217 km of city owned trails. With almost 600,000 residents, Brampton is the 9th largest city in Canada. Gorilla Bins is available to serve the entire community.
Filled with parklands and trails Brampton is known as the “Flowertown of Canada” and has been since 1860. Edward Dale established the town’s first nursery, and since the day he opened his doors, the town’s reputation has blossomed as a go-to place for great flower selection. To keep up with the reputation and beauty, Gorilla Bins can help take away all of your yard and gardening waste. This Flowertown is only 40 km away from Toronto.
John Elliot and William Lawson named Brampton after their hometown, Brampton, Cumberland, England back in 1834. Since then Brampton has grown and has been split into three different areas. Each area represents a different part of the city.
Downtown Brampton is home to century old character shops, the physical centre, fine dining and historic residential neighbourhoods. Queen Street Corridor is the east-west corridor of Brampton and is a vibrant mix of residential, hospital and some older houses, as well as some commercial buildings. The Bramalea City Centre is based around the largest indoor shopping centre as well as around Chiguacousy Park. Chiguacousy Park is a 100-acre destination park with sports and other facilities.
There are also Farmer’s and County Markets and pick-your-own farms. You can pick apples, berries, pears, pumpkins, squash and more. Most of these markets are on the historical heritage road in Brampton. Along with the markets there are also three community gardens in the city – Creditview Park Community Garden, McMurphy Community Garden and the Norton Park Community Garden. If you want to start your own garden or are cleaning up one of the community gardens Gorilla Bins can help with the clean up, so you don’t have to go bananas with the all mess.
To go along with its reputation for being the Flowertown, Brampton also has two conservation areas. Heart Lake Conservation area is named after the heart-shaped, spring-fed lake it’s surrounding. The other conservation is Claireville Conservation Area which is 840-acres and is popular with bird watchers. Before you go to enjoy the beauty of the city, Gorilla Bins can help you get out the camping gear and clean out your garage at the same time, with 4 different bin sizes.
But Brampton isn’t just all flowers and nature; it also has the largest CN Rail terminal in North America. The Brampton Intermodal Terminal is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week and is the intermodal hub for the GTA and South-western Ontario. Whether you are coming into the city at 7 am or 11 at night, you can have a Gorilla Bin ready for whenever you are ready to get cleaning.
