Fruit Trees and Compost Operations at Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill
Bringing yard waste to the transfer station or Foothills Landfill?
Please ensure there is no fruit included in the load – apples, crab apples and berries attract bears to the composting facility.
Want to avoid bears in your backyard?
- Pick fruit and allow it to ripen indoors or pick daily as it ripens. Do not allow windfall to accumulate on the ground.
- If you have more fruit than you can use visit the Prince George Fruit Exchange Facebook page or contact the Northern Bear Awareness Society at 778-281-2327 for more information.
- Apples can also be donated to the Northern Lights Wildlife Society. Apples must not be unripe or rotten. Drop off location in Prince George is 2050 Robertson Rd – Independent Glass Distributors Ltd.
