A thought on the issue of bears and garbage cans.
Many people put out their garbage the evening before the morning of garbage pickup.
Why do they do this? Probably because collection time in the morning is too early for their schedule.
If our goal is to stop bears from getting used to easy meals, we should be reducing the amount of time garbage sits at the curb.
If the city’s garbage/recycling trucks were even an hour later, more of us could get the bins out at a time that works for us and not for the bears.
