Drayton Valley is a central Albertan town located between the Saskatchewan River and the Pembina River. It is surrounded by Brazeau County, which is known for its oil fields. It’s no surprise then that one of the main drivers of Drayton Valley’s economy is the oil and gas industry.
Up until the oil boom, Drayton Valley was sparsely populated. In 1953 oil took off and the industry began to incline. Agriculture and forestry also provide jobs for the town’s residents.
Beyond the oil fields, Drayton Valley has plenty of things to do. The town bolsters community initiatives to support people as the economy changes. There is an exciting educational program for post-secondary students, as well as a wide variety of elementary and secondary schools. If you are travelling to Drayton Valley you can look into one of the town’s many arts facilities, the campground, the library or some of the recreational facilities. There’s a vibrant farmer’s market, and regular community events and block parties going on. You’ll love the natural beauty and community spirit.

Our Green Initiatives
Secure Container takes great pride in being a green company. We aim to recycle at a grassroots level by taking care of our stock of containers wisely. 56% of the world’s shipping containers are lying in junkyards, unused and decaying. They’ll need to be transported to smelting plants using cranes and large machinery, which is hard on the environment. Smelting down a container also consumes a large number of environmental resources. We prevent this by making sure none of our containers fall into disrepair, extending their lifecycle and cutting way down on waste.
