Recycling bins are located in the trash room on every floor. If the bin is full, or you have large boxes that don’t fit, please do not leave items on the floor beside the bins. This causes our day porter Raquel to spend extra time handling excess recycling which detracts from her ability to keep 1Mission clean. There are large recycling dumpsters in the G1 trash room and G2 recycling room. 1Mission’s primary trash dumpster is located in the G1 trash room and should be used for items that don’t fit in the trash chute or are not fully recyclable. Recycling only works if non-recyclable items are put in the trash, and not the recycling bin. If you are unsure where the trash and recycling rooms are located please ask a neighbor or reach out to Action.
The vehicle gate on Falcon automatically closes at 11pm and opens at 6am. If you are leaving during these hours, you should pull up to the white line on the ramp so the vehicle detection loop, which is embedded in the concrete, can sense your vehicle and open the exit gate. If you are returning when the gates are closed use the large button on your fob to open the entry gate. The gate receiver is located on the inside of the gate; therefore, it may be necessary to pull up close to the gate in order for the receiver to read your fob signal.
Fobs must be used to open the rollup gate on G1 and swing gate down to G2 since these gates do not have operable vehicle detection loops. We are working with the Access vendor to shorten the duration the gates remain open to improve security.
When using barbeques, please be sure to put the grill cover back on once the barbeque has cooled down. Our day porter Raquel checks the grills daily so it’s better to protect the grill from the elements overnight than to leave the cover off to indicate it needs to be cleaned.
Door Opening with Common Area Keys
All common area doors open with the common area key. The main entrance door is a double door with 3-point latches and can require more force to open it. If you have difficulty opening it, please use the side doors as they are single-point latches and are easier to open. The storage room on G1 was recently converted to a 3-point latch to improve security, so it too may be more difficult to open than it used to be.
EV Charging Committee
At the April open session Board meeting the topic of Electric Vehicle charger installation was raised. The Board approved for a committee to be formed to investigate the options and provide the Board with recommendations with supporting details. If you are interested in serving on the committee, please contact Kelly Thomson with Action at email@example.com.
