I hope everyone is doing well. Our garbage truck will be going in the shop on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 after regular scheduled trash pickup, for hydraulic repairs. They will need the truck for two days, therefore there will be NO TRASH PICKUP ON FRIDAY May 4, 2018.
While out in the park yesterday there were a few things I observed and wanted to send out a few reminders on such issues.
There were numerous bags of trash that were opened and picked through by the crows, leaving trash and debris in yards and on the roads. This adds an additional burden to our volunteers and employees who perform trash collection duties. It can also potentially pose a health hazard dependent on what type of trash is scattered about. Residents are encouraged to put your trash in a black trash bag or place your white, clear, or grocery store bags in a covered can, bucket, Rubbermaid tote, or other receptacle that is capable of being covered. I have heard that the black garbage bags work well, as the critters can’t see through them.
Residents are responsible for the disposal of all items such as tires, appliances, furniture items, construction residue, etc. Failure to properly dispose of these items will be subject to a $50.00 fee to the owner. As stated in our Trash/Recycle process. If an item is in question, please contact the office 772-464-4803.
Also please remember to use something other than a plastic bag to place your recycling in for pick up, we cannot put plastic bags in with the recycling. That is a waste management rule and our staff and volunteers shouldn't have to separate the recyclables from the non-recyclables on a routine basis, it is simply too time consuming.
