Bear Resistant Trash Cans

A note from Alice Wessen about bear resistant trash containers:

If you live in an Altadena area where you feel you need a bear resistant trash container (I do not dare say "proof") please contact Athens, our new franchise for trash collection and request one.

Be sure to list your address so they can verify your area is within the Altadena franchise area.


Bears generally do not go for landfill or green waste trash. But if you are putting out what I might call 'enticing trash' with food scraps and such, and you are regularly seeing your trash hit upon by bears, please be sure to contact Athens at the link above and ask.

We do not want to habituate bears to eating trash. Not good for them.
