Properly Disposing of Refuse and Recyclables

Please ensure you are breaking down boxes before discarding them and that you are putting trash and recyclables in the correct containers.  If these items are not done this could lead to individual fines for Owners and an increase in the refuse costs for the Association.  Thank you for your cooperation.
