We have had some calls from residents about our yard waste pick-up service. Here is what you need to know:
* Yard waste pick-up day is Friday
* Do NOT use your new trash/recycling containers
* Use older containers, bags, bundle or leave loose
* 4’ length max on individual limbs
* 6” max diameter on individual limbs
* 50 lb max per container/bag/item
* This does NOT include fencing, timbers or plant pots
For large yard items that don’t meet the above limits, please call Lake County Solid Waste Division at 352-343-9400. Yard waste can also be taken to the Log House Road Collection facility on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
We hope your garage sale last Saturday was successful if you participated. If you are wanting to donate items that you did not sell contact Vietnam Veterans of America to come by and pick up your items.

The trash service had issues today with the pick-up. Cans were knocked over by the lifting mechanism because of both cans being too close together. The workers picked up the larger stuff but smaller pieces have been left on the ground.
Please remember to leave a 4-foot distance between the cans to allow enough room for the arm to grab the individual cans.
You may need to place them on opposite ends of your driveway if you need to allow vehicles to come in or go out while they are waiting to be picked-up. Please make sure your bins are closed and the wheels are facing toward your home.
UPDATE: If you need bulk items picked-up please call 1-884-835-3661 to schedule.
Tomorrow is our first pick-up with our new schedule. Trash and recycling will be picked up. Yard waste will on Fridays.
Please remember that tomorrow’s trash and recycling pick-up is the last one on our regular schedule.
The new schedule goes into affect next week. This means trash and recycling are picked up on Thursdays, and yard waste is picked-up on Fridays.
Please see our original post for copies of the fliers that explain about the changes.
The Board revised the deed restriction enforcement policy in an effort to address a safety, health, aesthetic and odor issue:
Residents not cleaning up after their dogs when walking them in the community.
The problem has been getting worse. Recently dog feces were found along stretches of sidewalk.
This creates not only an odor problem, an unpleasant visual for our community, it also is a safety and health problem.
PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR PETS WHEN TAKING THEM OUT FOR A WALK. Enjoy the time with your pet, but take a plastic bag or other container with you on the walk and clean up feces deposited by your pet. Please take the bag and its contents home and properly dispose of them in your garbage can. Thank you.
In an effort to address this worsening problem, the Board recently revised the enforcement procedures to provide:
Immediate Fining for Failure to Clean Up After Pets: If a homeowner allows his/her pet to defecate on the property of another homeowner or the common areas owned by the Association and fails to clean up after the pet, the homeowner will be sent one (1) notice to correct. If the homeowner again allows his/her pet to defecate as stated above and fails to clean up after the pet, the homeowner will immediately be sent a notice of referral to the Fining/Hearing Committee. In the event the homeowner has been determined to have been in violation of the requirement to clean up after their pet, the fine will be $100 for each violation/occurrence.
Please help us keep our community clean, attractive, healthy and desirable.
The new trash and recycling cans are currently being delivered in the neighborhood. Starting October 6th they will need to be used.
Trash and recycling pick-up will be Thursdays. Yard waste pick-up will be Fridays.
There is a flier attached to your new cans that will supply all needed information.
[UPDATE] The fliers have been scanned and attached to this post. They should answer any questions you have.
