Biomedical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Edmonton
Established in 1795 as a Hudson’s Bay Company outpost, Edmonton is the provincial capital of Alberta Canada, and lies on the North Saskatchewan River in the central region of the province. Known as the "Gateway to the North," Edmonton's greater metropolitan area is home to nearly 1.4 million people. It carries the distinction of being North America's northernmost metropolitan area with a population over one million.
Edmonton is a centre of cultural, governmental, and educational activity and serves as a significant oil and gas production hub (hence, the name of its NHL team -- the Edmonton Oilers). Among other cultural institutions, Edmonton's museums include the region’s oldest cultural institution, The Art Gallery of Alberta, which was founded in 1924 and maintains a collection of more than 6,000 objects. Fondly referred to as "Canada's Festival City," Edmonton hosts a year-round slate of more than 30 festivals, including the Fringe Festival, Folk Music Festival, Street Performers Festival, and Taste of Edmonton.
Outdoor enthusiasts also love Edmonton. Any local will tell you that the crown jewel of Edmonton is the city's beautiful North Saskatchewan River Valley Parks system. Covering a length of 48 km, this expanse of urban parkland is 22 times larger than New York City's Central Park and is the largest in North America.
The University of Alberta in Edmonton is home to a beautiful botanical garden and has produced 67 Rhodes Scholars. It also houses the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, one of the oldest medical schools in Western Canada. In addition to the University of Alberta Hospital, Edmonton boasts more than 10 other hospitals, including The Royal Alexandra, the largest and busiest hospital in Western Canada.
