Bear-Resistant Trash Containers

Bear-resistant trash containers are a smart investment to help alleviate some conflicts with black bears.

We encourage the use of certified bear-resistant trash containers. Certified bear-resistant trash containers have passed a formal testing procedure that has been developed by the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC).

For more information on the Bear Resistant Products Testing Program and the current list of products that have passed testing, please visit IGBC Bear-resistant Products Testing.
