Our culture supports people to have good lives at work, at home and in the community.
AiMHi’s Common Goods Program
As you may be aware there has been ongoing concerns with the large outdoor donation bins used for the collection of gently used products. These have unfortunately resulted in some tragic situations since being implemented with a couple of re-designs along the way that have not been successful to date.
AiMHi has been diligently working on a resolution and would like to take the lead on new strategies to ensure these tragic events do not happen to anyone else. We are committed and making it a priority to keep the public safe. We have been working on a new design for collecting donations from the public.
We value the donations that are provided by our community to support AiMHi in their fundraising efforts and partnership with Value Village. We do not want to eliminate this valuable donation resource nor exclude our community from supporting us with this recycling opportunity. We do want to provide a viable safe alternative while ensuring items do not go to the landfill unnecessarily when they can be recycled. AiMHi believes the community also feels strongly about supporting a new safer alternative for the collection of products. We strongly feel this is the future alternative of replacing collection bins and is safe for all.
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 work on the truck during pickups and drop offs, as well as people in the office training when they are making calls to the public. Many of these people, once completed 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. There are 2 different sizes of wire bins to choose from to accommodate your specific needs each with a locking wheel system. You could place them in any location where your staff and the public could easily drop donated items into it.
We would have regular scheduled pick-ups to collect the donated items. There will be signage on the wire bins to alert people what they are used for, who they are supporting and what kinds of products could be recycled.
We are asking you to support this new safer concept of recycling while making a difference in your community and supporting our fundraising needs.
