Walmart is getting the attention of tourists and locals alike – and not for slashing prices or allowing RV camping in their parking lots for free.
A clothing donation bin run by the Canadian Diabetes Association has caught the attentions of Mile Zero residents and tourists, online, and in the real world.
“As a tourist, I wouldn’t come here again. Strange things to have - no one seems to care at any level. There could be a bylaw for unsightly premises, calls to the bin owners. I even saw some complaints online; but little action. It is a disgusting display all-around,” said Janice Beaton, passing through Mile Zero from Alberta during the first days of a jaunt up the Alaska Highway.
The overflowing clothes bin caught attentions of the online world as well.
Zach Cooper was succinct in summary.
Vince Moorman said there was cause and effect.
“This is why we can’t have nice things.”
Jessica Jahn offered solutions.
“There is currently nobody picking things up from these bins. It’s best to donate to somewhere else, like Bethel or the SA.”
When contacted for comment, Diabetes Association officials said they would be in contact with their local representatives to clean up the scene.
