Bears & Garbage

Garbage is the cause of 80 per cent of interactions between humans and bears on the North Shore. Collection rules, such as set-out times, are included in our bylaw to deter animals and reduce wildlife attractants—it's important to follow them.

  • keep garbage and Green Can in your garage, basement or wildlife-secure location during the week
  • set materials out after 5 a.m. on collection day, not the night before
  • bring materials in by 9 p.m. and store containers in a wildlife-secure place
