Trash Bin/Dog Waste
I must first apologize for addressing this to our 503 homes because this does not apply to 502 of you. It seems that one of our Members is depositing his/her dog waste and trash in a bin behind the Mail Pavilion. Some of you may remember that we used to have several trash cans at the Mail Pavilion, outside and inside, and big trash bins behind the building. The trash cans and bins were regularly full of dog waste, glass liquor bottles, leftovers from crab feasts, household trash, soiled diapers, chicken bones, etc. The decision was made at that time to remove all trash from the Mail Pavilion in order to eliminate the personal trash deposits.
Today the bin behind the Mail Pavilion that contained the salt for treating the sidewalks and parking lot was found to be filled to the top with dog waste and household trash. The salt that filled half the bin is now wasted as no one will dig through the waste to get to the salt. Since it was too heavy to move manually, two volunteer residents moved the bin on a hand truck to a location down the street for trash pick-up.
Shame on the person that is doing this. I would like to suggest that you discard your dog waste and trash in your own trash bin as do the rest of your neighbors. We appreciate the fact that you clean up after your dog, but we do not appreciate cleaning up after you.
Thank you, and again, so sorry to the 502 homes that had to suffer through this message that did not apply to you.
