Innovative program covers Greater Yellowstone area and Glacier National Park
What do you do with an expired bear spray? What if you have sprayed part or all of a canister? Are you about to board an airplane and need to dispose of a can? Should you throw away a training spray that uses inert ingredients? The answer? Recycle.
Simply take advantage of collection points in the Yellowstone and Grand Teton area that are detailed on a bear spray recycling website.
Glacier National Park has a drop-off at the park’s main gate too. Airports in grizzly bear country in Montana and Wyoming will now collect the canisters. All recycled bear spray ends up at a special sorting machine in Mammoth, within Yellowstone National Park.
