Wildlife and Human Cohabitation


Please answer your door on May 3rd when the City of Calgary Waste & Recycling Services team will be door knocking in Discovery Ridge. This is an educational campaign very specific to our community and is part of the work being done with the DRCA to support positive wildlife and human cohabitation. The team will have stickers for our green bins with them as well.

REMINDER: Please secure your bins and do not place them out until the morning of pick up. This is a widely proven method to minimize negative wildlife/human issues. Let’s work together to prevent any similar outcomes to last fall when bears had to be euthanized after becoming habituated to human garbage and compost.

Don’t invite bears for a midnight snack! Stay bear informed at this website: https://www.calgary.ca/waste/residential/be-bear-smart.html
