February 2018 Update: Discounted Bear Resistant Refuse Containers

At this time Seminole County has received more applications for the FWC’s grant program to provide bear resistant containers than the number of containers available. We will continue to collect applications and place them on a waiting list in the order in which they are received. Please do not send in payment with your application, once your application is approved, you will receive an invoice from Seminole County to purchase a bear resistant container. Please be advised that any additional grant funds that might be allocated to Seminole County would likely not be received until late 2018.

If you would like to purchase your own bear resistant container, they may be available at local home improvement/hardware stores and online. Manufactured containers must be 96-gallons or smaller and should meet the IGBC standards. 

As of August 08, 2017, the $60.00 annual service fee collected by the hauler was discontinued.

We appreciate your participation and patience.
