So i'm back in Toronto as of August 29. I had been in Boston MA for 2.5 months and then in Paris, France for 10 days.
Anyway, the point of this post is to illustrate my battle with the racoons. Yesterday night they made a mess of my green bin. The driveway was strewn with organics. It was horrible and disgusting to clean up. Difficult too because the driveway is paved with small rocks.
Determined not to go through another such cleanup, I made a bit of research online and found a product called "Raccoon Check" which is a strap that you screw onto the lid of a garbage bin. Here's what it looks like on my 2 green bins. I had to drill 3 holes on each bin. 2 holes on the lid, 1 on the side front.
After tonight we shall see who is winning!
