Bear-Resistant Totes Available For Purchase
Bear-resistant refuse totes are now available. DeBary residents may purchase the 96-gallon refuse totes from the City of DeBary. The totes, which normally sell at a retail price of $200 each, will be sold at a 50/50 cost share with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. The bear-resistant tote sale program is made possible by a $20,000 grant the City of DeBary recently received from the FWC to reduce human-bear conflicts.
The cost per tote is $100 per tote with a limit of one per residence. The totes may be purchased in person by cash, check or money order at DeBary City Hall during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or by mail by check or money order. Proof of residency and/or property ownership in DeBary is required. Contact City Hall for additional information.
Please note that a surcharge may be assessed by Waste Pro at some point in the future to service the bear-resistant totes.
