The board would like to pass a long some information to residents about the recent inconsistencies with the trash service The previous company that serviced our neighborhood, CSI, was bought buy ESI. As part of that acquisition process, some of the previous drivers/garbage men left the company. They have been short staffed and also training new drivers. It takes time for drivers to learn their new routes and run them efficiently.
The board has been working closely with ESI to make sure the trash is picked up each day as scheduled even though it may be later in the day then prior to the acquisition at times. The board will continue to monitor the situation and take appropriate action as needed. Please be patient during this transition process.
Please rake loose leaves to the curb. The grounds maintenance contractor will be conducting curb side leaf removal from the community the week of November 20th, weather permitting.
Bagged leaves will not be collect by the contractor. Bagged leaves are collected on recycling day, Wednesday, via the trash service.
There will be a second collection later in the season, approximately the week of Dec 18th
