Recycling & Trash:

Please be aware that:

BLUE BINS ARE FOR TRASH

GREEN BINS ARE FOR RECYCLABLES

For Cardboard Boxes:  Please break them down and put them BETWEEN the GREEN BINS.

And most important:  If you are in any doubt about whether or not an item is RECYCLABLE, put in the BLUE trash bins.

VIDEO PRESENTATION:

The Board invited Brad Eitten of Opendaker Trash & Recycling to speak at our 2013 annual residents meeting. Brad went over many aspects of trash, recycling, and large item disposal from the haulers perspective and current law. The presentation was videotaped and can be viewed by clicking on the link below.  One update to the video is that recycled items MUST NOT be placed in plastic bags.  If they are Opendaker will not empty the green bins containing them.  (See Above)

DISPOSAL OF TELEVISIONS, DESKTOP COMPUTERS, LAPTOP COMPUTERS, COMPUTER MONITORS OR COMPUTER PERIPHERALS:

Because the available ways to dispose of the above items is in constant flux, your best bet is to Google "Disposal of TV's" and see what turns up.  As of Oct 2018, one company that will take all the above items is called CYBERCRUNCH.

DISPOSAL OF FLUORESCENT TUBES & COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHT BULBS :

Our trash recycler has recommended that you put the long tubes in a 42 gallon, 3 mil heavy duty plastic trash bag.  Then seal the bag and put the bag into the blue trash containers.  The  small "compact fluorescent light" (CFL) bulbs can be put in with regular trash and the trash bag sealed.

As a side note, Home Depot and Lowe's will accept burnt out CFL's at their stores "return desk" and will recycle them free of charge.
