To prevent your garbage from becoming a bear attractant:

  • Store garbage in a secure garage or shed. Garbage is not safe from a bear in a carport, on a deck, or near a house.
  • Garbage should be at the curb only between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm on the day of pick up. (City of Revelstoke Garbage Collection Bylaw No. 1759)
  • Know when your garbage day is. Schedules are available at City Hall and online at
