Water Conservation Tips

Check your toilets for leaks. Drop a teaspoon of food coloring in the tank. If color appears in the bowl after 15 minutes, replace the “flapper” valve.

Keep your showers down to 5 minutes or less using a low-flow showerhead (saves 75 gallons a week per person).

Trash Bins: Please Help!

The trash bin areas are NOT for dumping large items. We have seen closet doors, sofas, chairs, dishwashers, televisions, Christmas trees, etc. Waste Management Company will not pick those things up and if we have to hire a company to haul it away, it eats into our budget that we need for important maintenance. Please put everything in the bins including your Amazon cartons and ALL other trash.
