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.
Log House Road Facility
We want to remind everyone that if you have workmen or services coming to your home to do work, please add them to your Envera list! We have had issues this week with lines of work trucks filling the visitor’s lane and backing up onto Hwy 27. These trucks backed up because the people they were here to see had not added them to their Envera list so time was wasted as Envera had to call homeowners to see if the visitors are approved.
You can learn all the ways to add people to your list HERE on our web page.
The kiddie pool is finally being repaired starting tomorrow. This will require closing the pools as they will need to be turned off. We will let you know when they reopen.
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.
The Lake County Sheriffs Office has declared a curfew starting at 7 PM tonight [Sunday] through 6 PM tomorrow. Please stay off the roads until then or the curfew is lifted sooner.
Irma is continuing it’s path up the west coast now. The hot waters in the Gulf will give it strength as it curves away from Cuba and over the Keys. Up to now we have had a cloudy, breezy day with some light bands of drizzle. We may not see any rough weather until tomorrow morning. Please stay safe and get to your home when the winds start to pick-up. The projected path below shows the storm moving by us very early Monday morning.
The HOA would like to thank everyone for removing items from their yard and taking in their cans ahead of the storm. Waste Management was able to get to our development and pick up all yard waste that was put out.
We hope everyone has had enough time to get the supplies they need, or the time to get loaded up and on the road if you are evacuating. Stay safe!
