Storm debris was finally removed today by FEMA. Please note: they did not take damaged fence panels. They will come back another day to take those. If your debris pile was removed, please collect leftover leaves and small branches and bag them for collection.
And don’t forget to come by the community BBQ tomorrow at the Club House starting at 11:30 AM.
We just received confirmation that FEMA will be here tomorrow (Saturday, October 21st) to pick up yard debris. We understand the community yard sale is that day, but the HOA did not want to delay this much needed pick-up when they gave us a date.
Please do not mix construction debris (if you have any) with your yard debris! FEMA has said they will NOT take construction debris! Please keep it separate and let them remove the hurricane debris.
The gates will open tomorrow morning at 8 AM for our community garage sale.
Also on Sunday the 22nd we have our BBQ at the club house from 11:30 AM to 3:00 PM. Pleas stop by and join us!
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.
