Hinton, Alberta is the gateway to the Rockies. Located in the interior plains of central-west Alberta, Hinton has heart, soul and a fascinating history.
The settlement was founded in the 19th century. A trading post was established in the community, which was later built over by CN railway. The rail routes changed over the years, but the Hinton stop remained useful. There is still a railway station in Hinton today.
The population of Hinton experienced a boom in the 1930s with the opening of a coal mine. The mind created jobs and attracted new workers. Not long after a recession hit Hinton, and the population dropped to below 100. In 1955 a pulp mill was opened, helping to regrow the town. Hinton’s population now stands at just under 10,000.

Secure Container is committed to following through on our corporate social responsibility. Over half of the world’s shipping containers are lying dormant in junkyards. It takes a lot of natural resources to transport the containers to a processing plant and smelt them down. This can be a wasteful industry, but we’re trying to change that.
We partake in grass-roots recycling by ensuring all of our containers are repurposed and used again. This prolongs the containers lifespan, and leads to savings for our customers.
