TRASH CHUTE CLOSED FOR REPAIRS
Posted By pyoo on October 5, 2018
As you may be aware, the trash chute is currently out of service due to damages caused by improper disposal of trash. The improper disposal of trash is not only a violation of the Residential Guidelines but it can lead to damages to the chute, injury and inconvenience to your neighbors, and potential pest control issues.
Please be advised that the trash chute will be closed until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation as we work to get the chute repaired as soon as possible. We ask that until the chute is fixed, you follow these instructions:
1. Place securely bagged and sealed trash in designated bin or area by the trash chute.
2. Place all recyclables in designated bins and please recycle!
3. Break down all boxes and place neatly in recycling bin or designated area by the bin.
4. No volatile, flammable and/or construction materials may be disposed at Solair.
5. Call the Front Desk to make arrangements to dispose of bulky items and/or compacted trash.
As a reminder, the Residential Guidelines, Trash Disposal states:
“Units have access to a trash chute for the disposal of garbage and trash. All refuse deposited into the trash chutes must be securely bagged and sealed and must not obstruct the trash chute. Open containers such as paper sacks, boxes, unsecured plastic bags, and/or reusable garbage cans are also prohibited. Compacted trash may not be placed in any trash chute as the velocity and weight of such trash may damage trash equipment. Volatile or flammable materials may not be placed in the trash chutes or dumpsters.
When depositing trash in the chute, please make certain that all hands and fingers are away from the door before closing. Do not put your head, arms, hands, etc. in the chutes as other residents above your floor may be depositing trash. In the event of damage to bags in the disposal process, Owners are responsible for cleaning up trash spilled in Common Areas and disposing of it in the proper receptacles. Unit Owners will be assessed for any cleanup services provided by the Association, after notice and hearing.
Owners are responsible for damage caused by spills or leaks from trash Owners carry to the trash rooms.
Oversized items should not be left outside the trash dumpster areas. It is the Owner’s sole responsibility to remove these items from the premises and dispose of them at their discretion.
Owners must receive prior permission before their contractors dump any construction materials in the Association’s dumpsters, and the Owners may be charged a fee for such use, if permitted.”
