COMMUNIQUE: TRASH TALK for BULK ITEMS and CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS
With our recent change in cleaning services, the board is getting a better understanding of the ins and outs of trash and recycle pick up.
Our trash that fits in the chute is easy to dispose of, but if you have an oversized (bulk) item, we now have a process on how to handle that. In the past, residents have placed these oversized items in the trash room and unfortunately, without a process, they’ve stayed there for months (or years in some cases).
DISPOSAL (SCHEDULING PICK UP) OF BULK ITEMS
Definition of a BULK ITEM – An oversized item(s) that WON’T fit in the Dumpsters
Residents are responsible for disposing of these larger items by:
1. Calling TFC at 757-543-5766 to schedule a pickup.
2. The TFC rep will set up an account for you; you provide a credit card number and TFC will place their current deposit amount of $400, and give you an estimate for each bulk item. Payment is taken from your deposit and after the pickup, TFC refunds the balance to you.
3. Placing the bulk item(s) on the curb where our trash/recycle regularly goes the day before our scheduled pick up days (for us, that is Sunday or Wednesday).
Note: The management company at some condos handles this, and the TFC rep may not know which condos do this. If they suggest you schedule this through The Select Group, just let them know that for the PH, this is done by the resident.
If you have an item that won’t go down the trash chute, but is not considered oversized (ie old chairs, coolers, buckets etc.) please place them IN one of the dumpsters. Anything left in the trash room but not in the dumpsters will be considered trash and thrown away.
DISPOSAL OF CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS
Contractors are NOT to use the PH trash room and/or the dumpsters for ANY of their construction debris.
This process will be posted in the trash room and on the PH website in the FAQs.
