When Does the Trash Bear Appear?

The Trash Bear does not appear during the first two years of your time in Stardew Valley. Instead, it shows up on the first non-rainy day of the third year, right by the sewer entrance. When you right-click on it, a dialogue bubble appears, displaying a random item that you need to bring to the bear.

What Does the Trash Bear Do?

Generally, the Trash Bear will ask for two types of seasonal fish or foraging items. In addition, it will request two dishes (four items in total). There’s no time limit to complete these tasks, so you don’t need to worry about finishing them the same day. However, if the requested items include seasonal ones, the Trash Bear will replace the previous season’s items with those from the current season when it changes. As for recipes, they are not seasonal, so you can relax about the time once you have completed the first two seasonal items.

What Happens After You Bring the Trash Bear the Items?

After repeating this process four times, you’ll trigger an animation in which the Trash Bear plays a pan-pipes to help clean up the trash below the cliffs and around Pelican Town. It even goes the extra mile by renovating Alex’s doghouse, which is incredibly nice of it!
