It may not feel too much like spring but the bears are definitely waking up. Here are a few tips on reducing bear attractants:
- Store garbage and organics carts securely and stored indoors or bear resistant waste enclosure whenever possible.
- Ensure that residential bins remain securely closed with bear clips locked.
- Ensure that residential carts are only placed at your pick-up spot between 5:30 am and 7:30 am on your pick-up day.
- Freeze odorous food scraps until collection day.
- Rinse carts regularly to eliminate odours.
