CWS improves situation for bears

 


There is now a bear trail around the outside of an electric fence at the landfill. No longer do bears go to the dump. No longer do employees of Community Waste Solutions (CWS) have to go to work wondering if they will have to confront Big Boy, a bear that can rip open walls. The credit for that goes to CWS. During their busy summer season, they marshaled the funds and effort to construct a high-quality, multi-strand electric fence around the perimeter of the landfill. In working with them, we found them cheerful, cooperative and desirous of constructing the highest quality product. It has been a pleasure working with them.  Thank you CWS for enthusiastically stepping up to keep bears wild and people safe.
