Be Bear Aware

Leaving your garbage at the curb the night before pick-up is breaking the law!

The town passed its first Wildlife Protection Ordinance effective April 1, 2005.

This law requires residents and business owners to secure garbage containers with a wildlife resistant or wildlife proof system, or be kept within a fully enclosed and secure structure.

Residents may place their containers at the curb at or after 6:00 a.m. on the morning of the pickup.
