Several have asked, so here is a summary of the TRASH COLLECTION SITUATION. About a year ago, our property manager, Berkeley, notified us they would no longer be managing our trash collection program. It has been a voluntary program since it was started. Berkeley collected fees from the participants and paid them to County Waste, along with fielding complaints and customer service requests. Our HOA has never paid Berkeley for this additional service, and it has taken a considerable amount of time for their involvement. The contract with County Waste expires at the end of February, so it was a good time for Berkeley to make the change. The Board has discussed this issue over the past year at regular Board meetings and at the Annual Meeting, and determined that without Berkeley's management of the money, it was not feasible to continue. Berkeley has transferred all customer info to County Waste, and letters have now gone out from County Waste to individual customers. We have been working with County to make sure all their staff are aware of the agreement that our rates will stay the same for 2020 if a customer chooses to stay with them. In that case, you don't need to do anything except pay the bill when it comes. If you want to change, you can choose whoever you want; then notify County Waste of your change so they can pick up your bin. The Board is not recommending one company over another. It has always been voluntary, and will continue to be that way. Trucks already come through nearly daily because not all residents are customers of County Waste. The change-over is March 1. This post is from Pat Duggan, President of HOA Board. ... See MoreSee Less

Could residents have an info sheet with the options available?

Will there be an adjustment in our HOA fees to reflect that Berkeley is not paying our trash waste fees any longer?

I am looking into recycling with County Waste, and one difference I see is that they don’t accept glass bottles and jars (I called to confirm because it was not addressed on their page one way or the other).

VOW will host Trevor Long, JCC Resource Protection group, for a workshop on Conservation Easement and Resource Protection Area Guidelines.

Since our four Villages are surrounded by green space, it is important for all of us to understand our obligations to protect it.

Homeowners are invited to join members of the Board, ARC and Grounds Maintenance Committee at the Clubhouse on Wednesday, February 19th, at 7 pm.

REMINDER....

As of March 1 the HOA will no longer manage the trash collection program. Residents can chose to keep County Waste and do nothing (they will continue to pick up your trash and will bill you directly) or you can make individual arrangements with a vendor of your choice and make payments directly to that company. In that case you will need to contact County Waste to arrange for pick up of your current trash bin.

I missed the HOA meeting and haven’t found minutes. What was the reason for this? Was it getting too challenging for the property management group to collect and pay? Lived in other HOAs before and trash trucks every day gets interesting.

I thought we could only have our trash can at the road on trash day in order to help keep our neighborhood looking nice. How is the HOA going to know who is and isn’t abiding by this rule, or is this rule going to just be thrown out (no pun intended)? It’s going to look tacky having cans on the road all the time.

Made some phone calls the other day... County Waste $22/ mo,but may change when contract expires. Suburban $25/ m. Ambrose $26/ m. Republic $21/m for 1st year. Several of these also charge a deposit for the barrel Why is the HOA not doing this?? The last thing we need is trash barrels on the curb and trucks coming thru daily,

Anne Wall EXACTLY!!!!!!! That’s what we are afraid of!!! WHY is the HOA not continuing!!! DONT WANT TRUCKS COMING THOUGH ALL WEEK!!!!

If anyone has recommendations let me know. County seems fine but open to others

What are the other choices?
