Thankyou Mountain View residents in Fernie, not a single garbage can on the curb the night before collection.

bear attractantTuesday August 27. WildSafeBC is currently conducting surveys on the number of residents putting garbage out on the curb the night before collection. Accessible garbage on the curb at night is the first step in getting wildlife hooked on fast food (garbage). I am pleased to report that not a single can was put on the curb the night before collection in Mountain View. Thank you :o) Any garbage out at night will be stickered with a fluorescent “Bear Attractant” sticker and follow up visits will be made. Surveys will be conducted the night before collection in areas with a history of human wildlife conflict over the next couple of weeks.
