Garbage Bin lock (Toronto raccoons)

Raccoons are getting into our Toronto garbage bins. Must be attracted to the baby diapers. Any recommended locking devices to prevent them from getting in?

Guess you're referencing the GREY bin....ppl use bricks/bungee cords or add some kind of latch. You could also try to secure it somehow to the wall or build an enclosure.

BTW anything that you add like that has to be removed or the garbage ppl won't empty your bin.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

The city of Toronto collects diapers in the GREEN bin.

Most other municipalities collect it with the regular household garbage.

Assuming your bins are in garage normally, put the garbage out early morning on collection day rather than the night before. You should be good if garbage is at curb by 7am.
