Bear Wise Funding Project


Gulf County, in cooperation with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Waste Pro, has developed a plan to install bear resistant clips to existing trash receptacles, in order to reduce human-bear conflicts.

Gulf County will purchase a kit (set of 2 metal gate hasps and installation hardware) to be installed on either side of a regular 96-gallon tote, which will be attached to both the lid and the can.

​Residents can obtain the kits. Please go (HERE) to download the information you need to get your kit.
