Happy New Year!
1Mission’s trash vendor is Republic Services, whose drivers have been on strike since December 17th. The Common Area Committee has been working with ProTec Janitorial to arrange special pickups of bagged trash and recycling from the G1 trash room. This is much more expensive than our usual trash service, so if you have nonperishable waste such as bedding, pillows, household items and bulky recycling please hold onto it until the strike is resolved and pickup service is resumed.
In the process of emptying the dumpster to get rid of stinking garbage it was noticed that heavy bags of trash rupture when sent down the trash chute, spilling over the bottom of the dumpster. It costs the Association $800 to have the dumpster exchanged for a clean one. For aromatic garbage such as diapers, cat litter, etc. or heavy bags of garbage please double bag the garbage and consider taking it to the G1 trash room to put in the dumpster.
HOA Fee Changes
Please remember monthly HOA fees increase effective January 1st. Be sure to update your monthly payment amount if you are setup for auto pay. Late fees will be assessed if your account is not paid in full by the 15th of each month.
Holiday decorations are allowed from the day after Thanksgiving until January 10th. This includes white light strings as well. No owner or resident may place decorations on plants or other areas within the Association’s common areas. Please ensure that holiday lights do not disturb other residences.
Christmas Tree Disposal
In previous years a compost dumpster was provided by our trash vendor at no additional charge for Christmas tree disposal. After switching vendors this is no longer the case and it would cost the Association $450 to provide this. Due to low demand and increased vendor costs, there will not be a dumpster on site for Christmas trees. Please dispose of your tree at one of the city’s tree recycling drop off locations. Information can be found at https://www.sandiego.gov/environmental-services/recycling/events/christmas The nearest location is Mission Bay.
