Community Cleanup & Recycling Event
In late September, the community association hosts a recycling event for community households to clean out their garages and homes of unwanted items. It is a great time to declutter and easily recycle at this event. Volunteers are required to man the various recycling stations, control traffic, and clean litter from the grounds. Volunteers will be provided with all necessary equipment.
