To assure that the Shadowbrook community is maintained, safe and attractive, the Board of Directors (BOD) has an adopted policy relating to trash and recycling. All Shadowbrook residents are encouraged to review and understand the rules and regulations which are outlined in the ARC Policy Resolution.
Section C.3 of the ARC guidelines states the following as being prohibited practices by both owners and tenants alike:
The practice of placing trash containers, trash bags, and recycling bins at the curb prior to 5:00 p.m. on the evening before pickup; leaving trash containers and recycling bins at the curb after 7:00 p.m. on the evening of pickup.
NOTE: All trash placed on the curb for pickup must be secured in trash containers or heavy-duty bags which can be secured in such a manner as to prevent spill age, opening in foul weather, or animal access. Recyclables must be placed in the recycle bin provided by the trash contractor. Branches and twigs must be tied in small bundles. Leaves and grass clippings must be securely bagged.
Leaving exposed trash containers in the front yard. All trash cans and containers must be kept in the enclosed rear yard or within the residence, out of the view of passersby.
As common courtesy trash including grass clippings and tree/shrubbery cuttings, shall not be disposed of in the wooded areas behind the lots. Recycling should not be placed out on the curb on windy days without being secured to prevent it from being blown into the woods, common areas or your neighbors property.
If residents have large bulky items needing pickup they must call the trash contractor to obtain information as to what items can be removed by the contractor and when the item(s) will be removed.
Items placed out for normal pickup that are not removed by the trash company will be the residentís responsibility and will be handled in accordance with the above rules.
If found in non-compliance with these rules at a hearing before the BOD the owner may be assessed a monetary fee of $10 per day (up to 90 days) for a continuing violation or $50 for a one time offense.
