BEAR PROOF TRASH BINS

To have "bear proof trash cans", you have to have a bear proof trash container. Manufacturers might claim that their trash cans can keep critters out, but without reinforced, industrial grade steel, that is highly unlikely. 

So why do you need a bear proof trash bin? For the bears, of course! Bears that eat human food become a danger to themselves and to other humans. You also need a bear proof trash bin because it is the law in Gatlinburg, TN. Other than that - nobody likes to pick up garbage that has been strewn everywhere by a bear or some other animal.

Our units have been installed all throughout Sevier County - including Pigeon Forge, Seymour, Kodak, Pittman Center and Gatlinburg. They have been approved by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) and are recommended by the City of Gatlinburg.
