Garbage & Recycle

Garbage

Garbage and Trash, know the difference

Garbage is defined as typical household debris which comes from the bathroom and kitchen like organic waste, clothes, paper products etc. and that can fit into a 30/33 gallon plastic bag.

Whereas trash is all the other waste which does not come from bathroom and kitchen like furniture, junk, garden and lawn trash, household hazardous waste, etc.

The Association has partnered with a vendor that provides door-to-door garbage service. Each unit owner shall provide their own plastic garbage can(s) and lid(s). Please identify your receptacle by writing your unit number on both sides as well as the lid.

Following are some additional guidelines as specified by the vendor:

  • Garbage must be bagged (loose garbage is unacceptable), tied, & placed in an appropriate container
  • Cat litter must be double-bagged
  • Bags should not be overweight (<25lbs/bag) 

Only typical household garbage is acceptable. The following items are not acceptable: tree limbs, grass clippings, leaves, construction debris, broken glass (or other sharp objects capable of puncturing trash bag), oversized items (i.e. furniture, appliances, large boxes, etc.), flammable items (i.e. any type of gas, fuel, oil, car batteries, paint cans, etc.), unbroken down boxes. 

Please make sure to follow these rules in order to keep our community and around the properties clean. If you have any questions concerning our garbage and trash removal, please consult our Rules & Regulations, section M and our FAQs. If you need assistance, contact us through our website or by email and we will be happy to help you.

What's the schedule?

The garbage is pick up by the valet service every week on Monday and Thursday afternoon/evenings* at the back of the units. We ask all residents to put their garbage bags in their respective garbage bin at the back of their unit on the night before. Please identify your bin by writing your unit number on both sides as well as the lid.

*Note that holidays may affect the normal schedule.

What's the schedule?

Our recycle schedule is every 2 weeks on Thursday morning* and we are the week in RED (click on the button below to see the schedule and download it as a pdf). We suggest you put your bin on the curbeside the night before. We do not have a valet service for recycle as this is picked up by the city of Homewood. Each resident is responsible for moving the bin from their unit to the curbside and bring it back after the recycle has been picked-up. Please identify your receptacle by writing your unit number on both sides as well as the lid.
