REMINDER: THE HOA does not govern who our residents use for trash/yard waste/recycling services.
WASTE MANAGEMENT is has the main trash/recycling provider in the neighborhood Our current rate is being increased dramatically beginning December 1, 2022. This is in part due to the rising cost of doing business and a lack of competition. The HOA does not govern trash/yard waste/recycling services, but we had on ongoing relationship with Cycle Works, that became Advanced Disposal that was bought out by Waste Management. In the past were able to negotiate with our provider to offer us a cost break along with extra benefits (free bulk pickup) – we have been unable to do so with Waste Management as they are requiring 80% participation to receive their ‘preferred rate’ and are not offering us any benefits. Additionally, they will no longer take any items not in a WM container, including yard waste. We feel that our homeowners are better able to negotiate rates directly with Waste Management vs. being in a 3-year contract that will increase each year or choose another provider who may offer the services they require.
