New GFL Trash Receptacles Week of June 20
The new GFL trash and recycling carts are starting to be delivered in our subdivision. Inside the cart will be a card with information about how to exchange your cart for a smaller one or have it removed.
Please continue to use your old Waste Management carts until July 1. Waste Management will be removing its carts following your last day of service (June 24, 25, 28, 29, 30).
Please just leave the carts at the curb. If Waste Management has not removed it within 2-3 days, please call their customer service line at 866.797.9018.
Our City Code Compliance team will NOT be issuing any violations from mid-June through mid-July for carts left at the curb or stored outside while the transition occurs. Please wait until the week of June 28 to report a missed cart drop-off by calling GFL at 844.464.3587.

If mailbox repair work is required because it was hit by a car, truck, plow, etc. and you do not know who hit it, it is important that you work with your neighbors to determine the details that can be reported to the police and the board. Photos are strongly suggested if a third party or insurance claim is involved. If you know who hit the mailbox, please contact the party that hit the mailbox and a member of the board.
