Wildlife resistant trash cans installed at Lazy Glen

wildlife resistant trash cans at Lazy Glen

Earlier this month, staff from the Pitkin County Sheriff's Office, Road & Bridge, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife distributed 76 new wildlife resistant trash cans to the Lazy Glen subdivision, a rural neighborhood near Old Snowmass. Last year, Lazy Glen had a high number of bear and trash related incidents. To help alleviate the problem, Pitkin County teamed up with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to purchase the trash cans using money from a State grant and dollars approved by the Pitkin County Commissioners. The Kodiak Cans are highly rated. "They are 95 gallons of rotationally molded, auto-locking, trash securing awesomeness!," says Emily Casebeer, Community Response Officer for the Sheriff's Office. She's excited to serve the community in such a tangible way and hopes this is the first of more efforts in the future to secure grant funding to make neighborhoods safer for everyone...including the wildlife.
