We’ve recently had two incidents of household items that were improperly disposed of. In one case, a large number of items that someone thought might still be of use to someone else were arranged on the wall of the potable water fill station near the dumpster. While the intentions might have been good, it certainly wasn’t a site that was inviting to visitors, guests, or fellow members of the Park. Please remember that the ONLY options for items in this area is 1) the bins for approved recycled items and 2) the dumpster. There are further options at the Sutherlin Sanitary Service on South Calapooia, but you’ve got to take a short drive to avail yourself of them. The recycle and dumpster area is not a flea market, a swap meet, or a “free for the taking area”. If you think an item still might have value, check with your neighbors or others in the park. Please, help keep our front entrance area clean, neat, and a good impression to others.
The other incident was the dumping of various household items onto the burn pile behind the storage area. The ONLY items that go onto the burn pile are plant, tree, or brush material, clippings, limbs, etc. Absolutely no chemicals, manufactured items, treated wood. If you’re not sure, ask the office or Randy for clearance before dumping anything here other than plant material.
Addendum: Donna Hostetter reminded me that useable household items can be placed on the Jacks and Jills Table in the Clubhouse. The money from sales goes back to Jacks and Jills for future events. A good cause for sure.
