Please store your solid waste in a secure structure until 8 a.m. on collection day. Keeping bears away from your garbage and organics will help prevent them from becoming food-habituated and destroyed. Once a bear gets a taste of human garbage it will routinely return in search of food.
From the Solid Waste Bylaw:
Every owner of a premises… must store all garbage, organics and recyclable materials in an animal-proof location or in an animal-resistant container until the scheduled collection day.
Not doing so carries a $100 fine.
