City needs bear-proof bins

"Some may have noticed this past year that the city did not put out its two bear-proof dumpsters."

Some may have noticed this past year that the city did not put out its two bear-proof dumpsters. That was because garbage bears are a regional problem and city hall feels that the RDKB should become involved also.

Last spring the city wrote a letter about this to the Regional District but the RD never replied.

Having no bear-proof dumpsters could result in more bears being killed.

The Natural Control Alternatives Society (NCA) has shared the cost of the two bear-proof dumpsters with the City of Trail.

We would like to restart the program with the city and also extend it to other places within our area, but we need concerned citizens to pressure their politicians to act.

E Millin,

NCA member
