Trash- Mondays & Thursdays
Recycling – Wednesdays
Yard Waste – Mondays
Bulk Items – Thursdays
Trash & Recycling Collection:
Please have your container placed out on the curb the evening before collection or by 6:00am the day of service.
Cardboard that does not fit inside your trash container will only be collected on your recycling collection day.
To better assist the collection crew, please place the containers at curbside, with the wheels/handle pointed away from the curb (the lid should open towards the road).
Please use good judgment when placing items near your curbside collection site. Our crews are trained to do a thorough job; therefore anything left near the containers may be collected.
CSI will provide a 14 gallon recycling bin at no additional cost. To request a 14 gallon recycling bin go to the following website and fill out the form Recycling Bin Request Form
Yard Waste Collection:
Dirt, rocks, mulch, stumps, and sod are unacceptable and will not be collected.
Branches/brush should be TIED IN BUNDLES ^Bundles can be no longer than an arm’s length). Limbs should be no longer than 4′ in length, 3″ in width.
Yard waste is considered a by-product of regular yard maintenance (i.e. grass clippings, leaves, twigs, and small shrubs) and NOT the result of a landscaping renovation.
CSI provides bulk-pickup of furniture and certain large household items (Not to exceed two cubic yards). Please call to schedule bulk-pickup prior to noon the day before collection. There are charges associated with certain bulk items and excessive bulk and must be PRE-PAID prior to removal.
CSI will provide trash and recycling service on most holidays that fall on a regularly scheduled pick up day, with the exception of NEW YEAR’S DAY, 4th of JULY, THANKSGIVING DAY, and CHRISTMAS DAY, or when the County landfill facility chooses to close. When a designated pickup day falls on one of these holidays, collection will be on the next regularly scheduled pickup day.
Alerts are posted on our website (www.CSIDISPOSAL.com) when we are not running due to inclement weather. CSI does not make up for missed collections due to inclement weather. We will pick-up the additional items on your next regularly scheduled collection day.
Christmas trees will be removed during the first two weeks of January on two specified days, CSI will give sufficient notice to the community manager. Christmas trees should not be placed in bags and should have all tinsel and ornaments removed. Trees must be placed on the curb prior to 6:00 a.m. on the designated collection day.
The beginning of 2015 has been a very busy time for Deepwood. We’ve had snow and sun and more snow. Lately the sidewalks have been very icy so please be careful when you’re out for a walk.
The board has approved the latest tree proposal that focuses on tree maintenance, so for the next couple of months you should see Growing Earth around the property working on more than 70 different trees. We have also renewed our contract for cleanup and disposal of the pet waste stations. Review of the association documents has begun and will hopefully culminate in a vote at this year’s annual meeting.
Please remember that the Deepwood Board of Directors and Committees are comprised of volunteers and we would like to see anyone with time or ability volunteer to make this community even more amazing.
Here are a few helpful reminders from Deepwood’s Trash Policy that will help keep our neighborhood looking clean and attractive:
GENERAL: Trash is picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays (except Christmas and New Year’s Day). Pickup normally occurs around 8 am so it’s a good idea to put your trash out by 7 am on collection (pickup) days. Should you miss a pickup, please remove your trash from the curb until the next collection day.
TRASH IN CONTAINERS: Place trash in sealed hard plastic or metal containers at curbside no earlier than the night (after dark) before pickup. Remove containers from the curb no later than 9 pm on the day of collection. Remember to mark your trash containers with your house number.
TRASH IN BAGS: Do not put out trash in plastic or paper bags until the morning of pickup (not the night before). Leaving bagged trash on the curb overnight brings unwanted animals and disease to our neighborhood. Please be sure to tie your bags securely before putting them out for pickup.
SNOW CONDITIONS: Place trash containers and bags away from locations where plows may cover them. White trash bags have been known to end up as frozen relics in snow banks after plowing.
The Landscape Committee worked hard in 2014 with numerous projects which included improving run off, stopping erosion, removing invasives, planting new trees and shrubs, building stone walls and replacing our aging entrance signs. We worked closely with our landscape architect, Kate Davidson and the landscape vendor Genesis to update our community and make Deepwood a more desirable place to live.
Please be kind to your plants and trees this winter. Salt is very harmful and can lead to decline and ultimately death if used near them. To lessen the ill effects of salt, use alternative deicing salts such as calcium chloride and calcium magnesium acetate. Sand is also a good alternative. Remember, if you have to use salt, a thin layer is best. If you see salt remaining on the sidewalk after the ice has melted, you have used too much. Layers of salt (as noted in this photo) will damage the pavement and is especially harmful to the paws of our pets as they walk through it. Salt is also damaging to our streams and rivers.
Early morning on February 6, Rebecca Sponga of Alsop Ct. noticed an unusual bird under the overhang of a nearby deck. George Paine took pictures, which helped confirm the presence of a Northern Bobwhite Quail. It is unusual to see one here, especially during these cold winter days. The Northern Bobwhite is in severe decline and efforts to increase their numbers is a top priority among conservationists.
