Keeping Raccoons Out of Your Garbage Cans

January 14, 2017 | western

The best solution is to keep the garbage cans in a garage or closed shed until the morning of trash pickup or until you take them to your dump. If that’s not possible, buy heavy metal garbage cans with tight-fitting lids. Raccoons (and other animals) can chew through the lids of plastic garbage cans. But a clever raccoon can even work the lid off of a metal garbage can, especially if he can first tip it over. Thread a bungee cord through the lid handle and attach it to the side handles of the can. You can also place a cinder block or other heavy weight on top of the can.
