Introduction of rolling garbage cans

We have invested in 100 new rolling garbage cans for placement in the common areas. For easy identification they have been labelled as Association property and should not be removed from the location where they are assigned. They are not to be found on private property as they are for the benefit of the community. We expect that this should help to reduce the spread of disease by reducing the amount of household refuse that is disturbed by stray animals. Please use appropriate garbage bags for proper disposal and close the lid securely after use.

Under no circumstances should construction debris be placed in the garbage areas. If large items that are not considered normal household refuse require removal, we recommend using the junk removal service.

Diseases spread by rodents such as: Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS), Murine Typhus, Rat-bite fever (RBF), Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium, Leptospirosis and Eosinophilic Meningitis. Enclosed garbage containers are recommended for disease control and support our existing pest control program.

Thanks to S.P.H.O.A. for supplying us with such nice new garbage containers – long required. Hopefully all residents will notify people working for them, not to deposit anything other than kitchen garbage in them.

The most important thing is for the garbage men not to bash them around and handle them gently. Hopefully the wild dog that has taken up residence in Sandyport will give up and move somewhere else now, although I fear some residents have been befriending and perhaps feeding it.

Many many thanks for the new containers. Christine Berlanda
