New Green Bins Aren’t So Raccoon-Proof After All
It seems Toronto’s new green bins aren’t so raccoon-proof after all.
A resident in Scarborough recently tweeted photographs to Global News showing the damage caused by raccoons just days after the new bins were rolled out.
The resident claims the bins are much thinner than the old ones as teeth marks are visible on the cover. In one photograph, the bin is shown with a gapping hole on the edge.
The City of Toronto has agreed to replace the damaged bin but questions remain on whether they will hold up to the job.
City officials say the bins were designed to keep those pesky rodents out of your organic trash.
Scarborough is scheduled to receive the bins first followed by Etobicoke and the rest of the city by the end of 2017.
