Composting / Keep Fruit & Berries Out of Compost


Keep Fruit and Berries out of Compost Materials

Bringing yard waste to the transfer station or landfill? Fruit cannot be included in the load. Apples, crab apples and berries attract bears to the composting facility.


Don't Attract Bears

  • Pick fruit and allow it to ripen indoors or pick it daily as it ripens. Do not allow fruit to accumulate on the ground.
  • If there is more fruit than can be used, visit the Prince George Fruit Exchange on Facebook 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 in Prince George at 2050 Robertson Rd (Independent Glass Distributors Ltd.).
