A reminder to residents that the new garbage carts in Castlegar are bear resistant, not bear proof.
This from Chris Barlow, Director Of Transportation And Public Works, who is speaking to reports of bears breaking into the new carts.
Last week was the first cycle of the city’s new bi-weekly garbage collection model which saw residents provided with new waste containers.
He says the city will continue taking feedback from residents and collectors to see if any changes need to be made in the future.
