Discounted Bear Resistant Refuse Containers

Seminole County will begin accepting applications to purchase 64-gallon bear-resistant garbage containers at discounted prices on June 1, 2017. The applications will primarily be managed on a first come – first served basis. The discounts are made available, in part, through a grant from the Florida Wildlife Commission. So, when the grant funding is exhausted, the discounts will be discontinued. Please refer to the guidelines and applications provided below. Finally, applicants that may not be able to afford bear-resistant garbage cans could receive one at no cost. Therefore, a separate application is provided for low-income qualified households. The grant award from FWC of $200,000 will be used to reduce prices for residents within the Seminole County's Urban Bear Management (UBMA) (west of I-4) as follows:

Individual homeowner/resident: $125.73

Entire HOA or Neighborhood Group: $42.14

Low - Income Qualified: NO COST
