Trash and Recycling Rules

Date: October 26, 2021
Subject: Trash and Recycling Rules

It has come to the attention of the Board that a reminder of the trash and recycling rules is in order. 

 

A number of unit owners are not aware or abiding by the Rules of the Association as it pertains to our trash/recycling procedures.  By not following the trash and recycling rules, Queens Landing is being charged extra money to handle and dispose of this trash. 

 

We are continuing our practice of issuing violations to homeowners who have been identified by our security cameras and key fob records, see pictures below.  The trash and recycling contractor will bill us for this additional work and this will be passed on to the homeowners who committed these violations.

 

Please note the following rules and save yourself a violation and extra cost of disposing of this trash.

CURBSIDE TRASH PICKUP AT YOUR HOME

Trash should be placed at the curb after dusk the night before pick-up in securely tied, heavy-duty plastic bags only (NOT in cans). If trash is placed out any earlier, you are in violation of the Rules and Regulations.

TRASH BINS AT THE MAINTENANCE BLDG

28 ADDITIONAL TRASH TOTERS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE MAINTENANCE SHED AREA. Place your household trash inside the containers in securely tied heavy duty trash bags not on the ground. This area is for household trash only.

Large items such as sofas, TVs, vacuum cleaners, mattresses etc. must be taken to one of Queen Anne’s County Transfer Stations (dump) by the unit owner.
