Firewise - Dumpster Rules

posted Oct 17, 2019, 9:28 PM by WWHOA Treasurer



The 2019 Fall Firewise Community Clean-up effort will include two dumpsters in the neighborhood from Friday, October 25 to Sunday, October 27, with pickup on Monday, October 28.  They will be located at the entrance to Mimus Lane and at the end of Vireo Way. NOTE: BOTH dumpsters are designated for GREEN waste only, including only leaves, grass and brush.  Please utilize the chipping service paid for by WWHOA.  Everything that can be chipped should be chipped, leaving more space in the dumpsters for all other green waste that cannot be chipped.


Please respect the following dumpster rules:

·       Dumping Times
Friday through Sunday until full (see rules below).

·       NO TRASH WHATSOEVER– GREEN ONLY – It is the homeowner’s/resident’s responsibility to ensure GREEN ONLY!!

·       NO dirt, sod, rock, concrete, tires or tree stumps.

·       Do NOT load the front (by the open doors) until the back is full 
Please stack your debris starting from the back. 

·       Materials must be evenly distributed and cannot exceed the rim of the box
Do not just throw in large, airy limbs that take up a lot of space. Trim them down and make room for more yard debris and trash.

·       Brush – Brush that is not cut down to allow it to lay down inside the dumpster quickly fills up the dumpsters.  Please ensure you do not leave brush bushy – cut it down so it lays down to allow better use of the dumpster space.  Take advantage of the county chipping service were arranging for the week following October 27,paid for by WWHOA.


    • Please NOTE:  These dumpsters are for Walden Woods Residents only and not for commercial use. 


    • For people who use a landscape service, YOU are responsible to ensure your landscape service handles your green waste as they always do – either put it in your green Recology bin OR haul it away themselves.  They are NOT allowed to use the dumpsters in lieu of hauling away as they normally do.


    • IF you do not use a scheduled landscape service and you are participating in the Firewise clean-up event by having someone do a ONE TIME clean up of your property, they may use the dumpsters to dispose of your GREEN waste.  YOU are responsible to ensure they take ONLY green waste to the dumpster and cut it up sufficiently to allow it to lay down to best utilize dumpster space. NO  REFUSE/TRASH ALLOWED!!  Please take YOUR responsibility seriously as we have had numerous problems in past years following the ONLY GREEN – NO TRASH rule.
