With bear, deer and other wildlife living in and around the City of Penticton, it’s important to do our best to minimize attractants. Please consider the following steps when preparing your bins for collection:
- Place your garbage at the curb no earlier than 5 a.m. on collection day and remove from curbside soon after collection.
- Ensure your garbage cart lid is closed and the cart is stored in a clean, secure location.
- Keep your carts clean and free of excess, smelly garbage. Consider freezing odorous garbage prior to placing at the curb on collection day.
- Rinse and clean any recyclables.
- Review Bear Aware tips on the RDOS's website.
