Hey Gold Bar! Come on down and bring your excess waste to the 'Bin There, Done That' Big Bin Event running June 26, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. (or until the bins are full).
This is an outdoor event in the parking lot of the Gold Bar Community Hall at 4620 - 105 Ave. Please enter the parking lot by the north entrance off of 105A Avenue as traffic will be one way only.
All AHS guidelines will be followed, including masking protocols which must be worn by all attendees.
The Bin Event is open only to residents of Gold Bar with an active GBCL membership.
