Animals have spread my trash everywhere! How do I get this cleaned up?

Dawne Holz

It is the owner’s responsibility to maintain proper trash receptacles and arrange for timely disposal to avoid animals getting into the trash. Despite best efforts, bears can be relentless and may outsmart your trash bin. If this happens, owner’s must clean up the trash as soon as possible.

If you are an absentee owner, you may be notified by the Site Manager or a CMA volunteer about an animal-induced trash blowout on your property. We kindly ask that the trash be cleaned up within 24 hours to avoid further spread of debris. If you – or your rental agency, if appropriate – cannot address this within a day, you should contact the Site Manager to make arrangements for clean up. You will incur a fee for this service.
