Help us keep our community litter free
Posted on Jul 8th, 2021

Neighbors,
 
We know that everyone cares and is prideful about our community and wants to keep it looking it's best!
Unfortunately, our local playground, pool parking lot and several common areas throughout the community have been tarnished by litter, fast food wrappers, and pet waste. 
 
Children can injure themselves or become ill handling litter. And, litter ingested by pets and wildlife on land, and in water, threatens their lives. Litter provides a breeding ground for disease-carrying rats and insects and it goes without saying negatively impacts the beauty of our neighborhood.
 
Our landscaping company does pick up litter once a week while they are servicing our community on Thursdays. However, given the continued issues and shear amount of litter, we are looking to hire a groundskeeper to come out twice a week to maintain the community by picking up litter and trash left by others. In addition, we are working to order a trash container for the pool parking lot. It's saddening that our Association has to incur additional expenses due to the neglect of others.
 
While the Association is taking measures to address the issue, we kindly ask that all residents in the community help as well by practicing the below:
 
Please talk to your children about the impact littering has. The more we can help educate our youth the better chance we have to decrease litter. Also, set a good example and dont be a litterbug!
 
Always put your trash in a proper container. If one is not available, hold on to your trash until you find one. If you have suggestions on where additional trash containers can be placed, please contact the Board of Directors.

If you are a smoker, always put your cigarette butts in an ashtray or trash container, not on the ground. Butts are toxic and polluting and are dangerous to children and pets that might ingest them, choke or get burned.

Always keep a trash bag in your car and use it; grocery and produce bags work well.

Report any illegal dumping of litter, debris or contaminants to Red Rock Management.

Let's work together to help keep our community clean!
 
Sincerely,

Waterstone Board of Directors
