Trash Disposal

Trash disposal is often causing friction.

Due to general unawareness related to disposal of uncommon items and limited recyclable bin space, our property is sometimes mismanaging trash disposal. Let's all make a small effort to keep our property clean!

General Trash

  • Place your trash bags in the open trash containers located in the outside parking lots.
  • Please do not use the dumpsters for anything other than trash.


  • Flatten your boxes before placing them in the recycling bin.
  • Plastic bags are not permitted in the recycling bins.

For details on what can and not be recycled, please refer to the diagram here or the updated list provided by the city.

Bulk Trash
