The quaint town of Caledon only has a population of 68,000 people, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t booming with life. Caledon was established January 1, 1974 and is made up of many different little communities. The “Community of Communities,” is made up of Bolton, Caledon East, Belfountain, Cheltenham, Alton, Palgrave, Inglewood and Caledon Village. These communities are only approximately 40 minutes away from Toronto, and Gorilla Bins operates across all of them.
These communities boast many beautiful and quaint homes . So safe, that Maclean’s called Caledon the “Safest Town in Canada,” in 2008.
Caledon is also the home to many notable people. Renowned Canadian author Farley Mowat was a Caledon native. The director Norman Jewison and actor Jordan Gavaris are also from Caledon. But artists aren’t the only notable people to come out of the small community; there are many athletes as well. Caledon’s home grown athletes include olympic swimmer Reema Abdo, hockey players Nick Crawford and Lorne Duguid and the curling champs and married couple Allison and Caleb Flaxey.
In Caledon’s 700 square kilometers, it has Farmer’s Markets, over 260 kilometers of publicly accessible bike and walking trails, and is one of the largest equestrian communities in southern Ontario.
Caledon held both the dressage and jumping events for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games. Caledon is the heart of equestrian activity in Ontario. They have a Caledon Equestrian Park, as well as a Teen Ranch. All of those beautiful horses and stables are bound to create some waste, and to make it fast and easy, Gorilla Bins can take it away all at once. We are also available to take the bins away once you’re finished with them.
Caledon is also known for being one of Ontario’s greenest communities. It’s filled with parks and even has grants and helps businesses to be more environmentally conscious. Gorilla Bins can help you continue in the environmental footsteps of the city of Caledon, by disposing of your garbage and junk properly.
Caledon is filled with adventure all year round. Whether you are walking through the restored, historic, Alton Mill Arts Centre filled with galleries, museums or shops, or you are going through the Albion Hills Conservation Area, Caledon has a certain historic and community feel to it. This feeling doesn’t have to go away when you get home. Gorilla Bins has four different bin sizes ready to help you with your disposal needs, so you can finish restorations, construction or just spring cleaning and get back to relaxing and enjoying the atmosphere.
Along with the natural beauty of Caledon, there are some great strides in industrializing the city. Caledon has been home to the Brampton Flight Centre since 1946. It’s one of the top-flight schools in Canada, and you can even book a scenic flight over the city.
