Toppled over trash cans spilling out household waste are a common site near Bolin Street in East Anchorage, especially midday on a Sunday, as a mix of regular and bear-proof trash cans line the street, in preparation for Monday morning's trash pick up. 

Bears had already hit the neighborhood once Sunday, according to resident Arthur West. 

"You see the trash back there? They just snatch the bags and they run over the fence with them and they leave all the debris back there in the back and there's nothing anybody can do," West explained, pointing to trash in the trees near his home.
