Garbage Disposal

Provision is made for garbage disposal in the five dumpsters located in the convenient enclosures. The garbage is removed on Tuesdays and Fridays. There is sufficient space in each dumpster for waste generated by the Units they serve.


Recycling is a simple process with the Little Falls Recycling Yard conveniently located nearby on Sindle Avenue. Neighbors will help those unit owners who cannot handle the recycling.

Leaving garbage outside the dumpster is a health hazard and unsightly. Garbage attracts rodents and raccoons.If new appliances are installed the agreement should include the removal of the used item(s) by the contractor. Carpeting discards should be removed from the property by the installer.
