Waste Pro was sighted in the community today picking up some of the smaller piles of debris. We are hoping this continues, but we still have some very large piles of trash.
We are going to end the call for volunteers. Some residents had tried to clean up but were running into rats in the piles. The HOA is still working to try and get everything removed faster. If you are able to put any of your yard waste in plastic bags, the HOA president is working on a way to get the bags carted away in the coming days.
Our Community Barbecue is scheduled for Sunday, October 22nd, 11:30 AM to 3:00 PM. Come to the Club House for food, music, and face painting for the kids!
A reminder that our community yard sale is next Saturday 8:00 am to 2 :00 pm.
On the subject of yard waste: our HOA continues to contact Waste Pro each day asking for an update on when they will collect our debris from Irma. Sadly, they are telling us it could be 3 more weeks before it gets removed.
We were not able to get a date from Waste Management on when they will have a yard waste pick-up. We will post when we do.
In the meantime, if you would like to dispose of your yard waste yourself and have the means to haul it yourself (truck, trailer, etc), you can take it to the Log House Road facility. Due to the storm, Log House facility is open 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday (they are normally only open on Wednesdays and Saturdays). You will need to empty the yard waste yourself so be prepared when you get there. Click the link below for the map location and directions.

Our HOA President, Irene Martello, would like to thank all our residents for the great effort in cleaning up your yards. We will let everyone know when Waste Management will be around to get yard waste. Remember that trash & recycling will be on Friday, not tomorrow.
As you do clean up, please remember to not leave branches and debris in front of storm drains. It can get in there then build up and clog the storm drains. Thank you.
Thursday evening at 6 PM we could use volunteers at the club house to help set up the chairs and tables for the pool area reopening. If you can help out please stop by. Thank you!
Due to Hurricane Irma on Monday, trash & recycling pick-up will be on Friday. We are unsure if yard waste will be picked up on Saturday. We will let everyone know once we get a definite answer from Waste Management.
Now that Irma is past we know many of you are busy cleaning up your yards. The HOA just spoke with Waste Management. Here are the basics the told us:
- If you have long limbs or trunks to be picked up, they must be cut down to 5′ or 6 ‘ lengths, nothing longer. The truck used to haul yard waste cannot take pieces longer than that. Please cut down anything that is too long.
- Because of the storm Friday is our trash/recycling day. Waste Management is picking up both waste and recycling cans and co-mingling both types of trash to speed up the process. Since bags outside the can will not be picked up, you can place additional bags of waste in your recycling can. We do not know if Waste Management will have a yard waste pick-up on Saturday. Please stay tuned and we will post as soon as we have an answer.
- Envera sustained damage to their facilities from Irma and the gate will be down for the foreseeable future. During this time we will be hard pressed to keep solicitors from going door-to-door offering to do work for you. Please do NOT pay for any work from unsolicited workmen! We cannot give any guarantee on the type of work you will receive. Please do your research online or call companies for repairs you need.
We have been told by Waste Management they will attempt to pick up yard waste on Saturday but are unsure because of the storm.
If you do put yard waste out, please be prepared to bring it back in if the truck ahs not picked it up by early afternoon.
