The baskets are assembled in an off-site warehouse, where the baskets are handled and packaged. Another feature to add to the baskets is the Miles Containers label that is on every bag once they have been made and handled.

After manufacturing the containers, the baskets are sold at the Miles Containers and Packaging Supplies store, located south of Waterford, Ontario, at the intersection of Old Highway 24 and Concession 11.

For the 2008 season, Miles Containers will be limiting construction to the 3-litre paper basket. Next year, the company will be assembling all four sizes of paper baskets.
