Bear-proof trash bin loans available at South Lake Tahoe

Sunday, May 21, 2017|2 a.m.

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif.– A waste management authority on the south shore of Lake Tahoe has actually started using property owners loans to buy bear-proof garbage bins in an effort to decrease conflicts with the animals who wander into neighborhoods searching for an easy meal.

Bear security supporters and the Nevada Department of Wildlife long have actually promoted necessary bear-proof bins at the lake, however city governments have actually resisted because of the expenses.

The bear box loan program approved by the South Lake Tahoe Basin Waste Management Authority in March permits house owners to obtain loans of approximately $1,200 for the bear-proof containers.

Administered by South Tahoe Refuse, the loan payments cover 5 years and include quarterly payments of as much as $65 on top of the routine trash collection service costs.

“I can tell you that because we’ve launched this program I have actually had over 100 demands and that’s just in the last month or two. They can be found in every day,” South Tahoe Refuse administrator Jeanette Tillman told the Tahoe Daily Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/n3vzjv2)

The only loan qualification is that the resident own a house serviced by the refuse company, which includes Stateline, Nevada as well as the city of South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe-area residences in California’s El Dorado County.

Loan applications need a $50 processing fee and a $100 administration fee once the loan is authorized. House owners pick a bear box from a list of authorized suppliers and South Tahoe Refuse pays for its purchase and installation.

“Bears train their young to find food, similar to humans do. The more food they discover, the more likely they are to show their cubs where the food is and sometimes that’s trash bin,” Tillman stated. “It has to do with teaching wildlife that there is no source of food there, and bear containers do that.”

Ann Bryant, executive director of the BEAR League, is among those who have actually joined the Nevada Department of Wildlife in assistance of local ordinances mandating bear-proof containers. But she said “this is a big action in the best direction.”

California’s Second County authorized a comparable bear box loan program for locals on the lake’s west coast served by Tahoe Truckee Disposal Inc. in July 2015. On the north shore, a $300 rebate is offered to citizens of Slope Town, Nevada, who set up a bear box from an approved supplier.

Nevada’s Douglas County evaluated its garbage regulations last year however chose to keep its policy needing a bear box be set up after 2 garbage offenses within 2 years. El Dorado County has a similar policy, though it requires all new domestic building to include a bear box. In South Lake Tahoe, bear boxes are never mandated, but citations are issued for garbage offenses.

State Wildlife Department representative Chris Healy stated the state firm believes obligatory bear-proof bins may eventually be the only way to “conserve bears and permit individuals to live in and amongst bears.”

“So any action that goes toward that we invite,” Healy stated.
