Bear Resistant Trash Cans Now Required in Colorado Springs West Side

Colorado Springs is now requiring bear-resistant trash cans, with offers of alternatives, for many people who live west of I-25.

The ordinance would require people who live west of I-25 who don’t have a garage or a secure place to leave their trash to get a bear-resistant can, or to follow strict times trash can be put on the curb for pick up.

The cans cost between $200 and $275.

There is no custom code to display.
