On an update to our previous post on yard waste pick-up: The HOA board has been in touch with Waste Pro and confirmed about their change to pick-ups.
Waste Pro will pick up leaves/yard waste in plastic bags, but will not take the bags. They will empty you yard waste into their truck and leave the bags behind. If you want to have them pick up everything, you will need to use biodegradable yard waste bags.
And don’t forget that this Saturday (March 30th) is our Community Garage Sale starting at 8 AM.
Waste Pro contacted the HOA this week to tell us that there is a change to their yard waste pick-up regulations:
No longer will they pick-up yard waste in plastic bags; it must be in paper yard waste bags. These are readily available at all home improvement and big box stores [Target, Wal-Mart]. All other pick-up rules remain the same. Please see our web site page for garbage and recycling for these rules.
You can dispose of your old Christmas trees for yard waste pick-up. This week it is tomorrow (Saturday) because of the holiday, but will be back to Fridays next week.
Thanks to the resident who asked about this!
Happy New Year to all our residents!
Trash, recycling, and yard waste pick-ups will be pushed back one day because of the New Year’s holiday.
Trash & recycling will be picked up Friday morning and yard waste on Saturday morning.
Because of the holidays this week, trash & recycling will be picked up on Friday morning, and yard waste pick-up will be moved to Saturday.
Happy holidays to all!
Trash/recycling & yard waste pick-up will be shifted one day back due to the Thanksgiving Holiday on Thursday.
So please put your trash and recycling bins out Thursday evening. Yard waste will be the next day.
There have been many instances noted lately of residents mowing their lawn and not picking up the leaves and grass clippings left in the streets. Clippings not picked up eventually wash into the storm drains and can cause them to clog.
If our sewer drains have to be cleaned out due to build up of yard waste, the HOA will have no recourse but to put that cost into a special assessment that comes out of the finances of the community, possibly leading to increases in HOA dues. The community is already paying for services and repairs to the landscape due to the extremely cold weather we had last winter (landscape replacement, repair to bust irrigation pipes), the cost of having the sewers cleaned out is a major expense we don’t want to have to also pay for.
