Yard Waste
Posted on Wednesday, June 29 @ 11:34:27 (20 reads)
Announcements Attn: All Homeowners

Recently there have been increased incidents of homeowners putting their tree trimmings and yard waste on the curbside days before trash pick-up. Please be advised that yard waste should be placed out for pick up on Tuesday for Wednesday (scheduled pick up date) or have your Lawn Service team remove all debris when they leave. The BOD/HOA is thankful that many homeowners take pride in beautifying their homes and landscaping. However, when the debris is placed days before the scheduled pick up date, some of the debris gets into the catch basin, which further travels to the ponds. This debris, in turn increases nitrogen buildup which causes algae bloom and other problems with our ponds. When this occurs, it clogs the outflow, which could lead to flooding. Our community volunteers clean the OCS and outflow, but reducing debris helps in preventing major problems.

According to the Seminole County Solid Waste Services website:

Yard waste is vegetative matter resulting from yard and landscaping maintenance on your property and consists of tree branches, leaves, grass clippings, and palm fronds.
  • A total of fifteen (15) containers will be picked up each collection day, in any combination of bags, tied bundles or containers.
  • Bundles can be no longer than four (4) feet or contain branches larger than four (4) inches in diameter.
  • Bundles, bags, or containers can weight no more than 50 pounds each.
  • The hauler will leave behind containers exceeding the 50 gallon/50 pound limit, special waste (such as construction and/or demolition debris, household hazardous wastes, tires, etc.), or garbage mixed with yard waste with a tag indicating the reason.
