Obtain A Bear-Resistant Container

When ordering a bear-resistant trash container, be sure that it has been certified as indeed being bear-resistant by the Living With Wildlife Foundation bear-resistant container testing protocols.  Note: Some containers made available in our area have not passed testing by the Living with Wildlife Foundation and have not been certified as being bear-resistant. In the county, only Phoenix Recycling currently offers certified residential bear-resistant trash containers.

City residents and businesses with damaged bear-resistant trash containers should contact the city at 970-375-5004 to schedule repairs. County residents should contact their waste hauler.
