Alpine Property Management introduces bear safe trash cans

In light of recent events in Yellowstone Park, it’s more
important than ever to be ‘bear aware,’ and Alpine
Property Management of Big Sky is taking a vital step
to keep Big Sky residents safe.

Allied Waste is currently switching out 15 old trash
cans per week with bear safe models. Each of Alpine’s
clients will have a bear safe trash can for an extra $2.50
per week.

Markus Kirchmayr, head of Alpine, wants to remind
Big Sky residents to take the trash out early on the day
of pick-up instead of the night before to prevent the
amount of time a bear can smell the trash and potentially
move onto a property.

In our community “you see rocks on top of trash cans,
[because] wind can blow over the lid. With this new
mechanism it won’t be possible,” said Kirchmayr.

Also, the new cans will keep out ravens in the winter.
“We are the first company in Big Sky to change over
all of our trash cans to bear proof receptacles,” said
Kirchmayr. He hopes Alpine will set an example for
everyone to bear proof their trash in order to keep the
community safe.
