Be Bear Wise

With careful management of your waste, you can reduce the chance of attracting bears to your property. Store waste and recyclables in a bear-resistant container, secure shed or garage. You are also encouraged to visit a Waste Disposal Site, especially if concerned about materials being left for collection overnight or for a number of hours.
