New Waste Disposal Contractor
Liberty Commons’ Board of Trustees decided to change up our waste disposal contractor effective March 30, 2017. Liberty Commons’ Board of Trustees were able to negotiate a more beneficial cost of dumpster and waste disposal by saving $1,776 in the first year of services, and have a maximum of a 2.5% rate increase after the first year of service for the next two years.
The normal scheduled pickup date will be changing from Thursday to Wednesday, starting with the first pickup date on April 5, 2017.
Dumpsters are for resident’s use only for household waste generated onsite. No offsite trash may be disposed of in dumpsters and Non-Resident Unit Owners may not dispose of trash in dumpsters. All boxes should be broken down flat before being placed into the dumpster.
As a reminder, no one may place and/or discard any radioactive, volatile, corrosive, highly flammable, explosive, biomedical, infectious, or hazardous materials (“Excluded Waste”) as defined by applicable federal, state or local laws or regulations in any dumpster or elsewhere on the property. Please consult the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection’s Property Managers and the Waste Bans (.pdf) for some information and guidance. This is not an all encompassing nor exhaustive list.
No one may leave trash, waste, garbage or similar outside in the Common Areas (anywhere outside the Unit) or Limited Common Areas (decks and patios) nor anywhere outside of the inside of dumpster itself. No personal trash containers are permitted on the property. No trash may be left outside not even momentarily. If a dumpster is full, then there are four other dumpsters on the property that should be utilized. Placing or leaving trash anywhere outside the Unit is an immediate fine, without exception, as it is a health, safety, and liability infraction. No personal property may be left near a dumpster or anywhere in the Common Areas with signs that say “free,” such as furniture or other unwanted personal items.
