Communal Wildlife-proof Bins
New residents often wonder why Jasper doesn’t have curbside pick-up like other communities across Canada. The main reason is that all waste must be secure from wildlife. Leaving bins with easily accessible waste, recyclables or organics would soon draw in opportunistic animals, creating a safety hazard for everyone.
All bins in Jasper whether for recyclables, kitchen organics or waste are wildlife-proof, equipped with special latches that keep even the bears out! In a national park keeping wildlife out of waste containers keeps everyone safe.
The option of curbside pick-up with specialized roll-bins was explored by a waste management specialist firm in 2011. A recommendation of the final report was that it would be most cost-effective for Jasper to retain the current infrastructure and continue to promote recycling and composting in order to increase program participation.
