The Causeway Bay Hotel in Sparwood upgrades to Bear Resistant Dumpsters

Thank you to the Causeway Bay Hotel in Sparwood who has shown commitment to preventing human/wildlife by upgrading to  bear resistant dumpsters and thank you to all Sparwood residents who have bear proofed their properties and are keeping garbage indoors until the day of collection.

The Bylaw Officer and WildSafeBC conducted an evening patrol in Sparwood Heights and the Elk Valley Mobile Home Park last night causeway bay dumpsterchecking for garbage out on the curb the night before collection which is a bear attractant. Six written warnings and one verbal warning were issued.

Keeping garbage indoors and inaccessible to wildlife and securing attractants is the best way to keep wildlife wild, communities safe and prevent the needless destruction of bears.
