Tips for Securing Trash

Modify your trash can to make it more difficult for wildlife to access. Another option to secure trash is to construct a wildlife-resistant garbage can caddy.

Use commercially-manufactured bear-resistant trash cans. If your trash is secured from bears, it is secured from all of Florida's wildlife.

Consider a bear-resistant dumpster, particularly in regions with high bear activity.
