Garbage

Scheduled garbage collections will be on MONDAY and FRIDAY of each week. If collection day is a holiday, the garbage will be collected the day after the holiday unless the holiday is on a Friday in which case collection will be on the Thursday preceding the holiday. On occasion, and if determined necessary by management, this schedule may be altered. Notification of schedule altering will be attempted. Two trash containers are provided by Modern Manor and are to be kept in the wooden bin provided. Replacement containers and/or wooden bins will be provided upon request. Container lids are to be in place, CLOSED, and secured to the trash receptacle at all times. Garbage MUST be in heavy weight (minimum .85 mils) garbage bags (plastic grocery bags are NOT considered appropriate) with the tops properly secured. If unsecured, the garbage will NOT be picked up.

If located elsewhere, the tenant is responsible for placing secured garbage bags curbside on the appropriate days. PLEASE DO NOT SET YOUR GARBAGE BAGS AT THE CURBSIDE PRIOR TO COLLECTION DAY. Trash containers and wooden bins are to be kept free of debris and garbage. Your cooperation and assistance in meeting these standards is expected and appreciated.
