As the weather has shifted towards winter, the bears have moved on for the season. As a result, the City of Calgary has advised us that the Wildlife Affected Area designation for Discovery Ridge will be lifted on Friday, November 3.
While the City recommends that bins be stored securely and not placed out overnight for pickup to deter all wildlife from scavenging, the City will not enforce this when the designation is not in effect.
Note: This also means that the temporary 9:00 am bin pickup start time has also been lifted. Bins must again be placed out for pickup before 7:00 am.
