TRASH DISPOSAL and DUMPSTERS — An ongoing issue – Dumpsters are for HOUSEHOLD trash only. Oversized items such as tables, chairs, furniture, toys, lamps, drywall, doors, toilets, mattresses, carpeting, and contractor debris, as well as paint cans, do NOT belong in our dumpsters: These things MUST be placed off to the side of and not touching the dumpster. Trash should NOT block, lean against, or be placed in such a way that it prevents the garbage truck from accessing dumpsters — a $50 fine for each occurrence will be imposed on those individuals who fail to comply. On Monday and Friday mornings, HOA Maintenance picks up the items prohibited in dumpsters. Residents doing their own home renovations should call Maintenance at 631-698-2497 to arrange a special pick-up. Cardboard boxes should be flattened and disposed of in the recycling bins located along the main roads throughout the complex, however, if you must throw cardboard boxes into our dumpster, break them down to conserve space.
VISITORS – Please advise your guests of the Condo 8 House Rules and By-Laws and request they follow the same guidelines as those who live here. ALL Residents are responsible for the actions of their visitors—within Condo 8, as well as the entire Brettonwoods Community—including, but not limited to, proper parking, driving the speed limit, obeying community Stop signs, utilizing the clubhouse facilities, and appropriate disposal of trash and cigarette butts: Fines WILL be imposed on the homeowner for their guest’s failure to do so.
LITTER – If you spot someone littering (e.g.: cigarette butts, fast food bags, cans & bottles, etc.), let the Board know so fines can be issued appropriately.
PIPES – We are all connected through the pipeline, so let’s avoid clogging it up for everyone. Cooking oils and meat fats do not belong down the drain; store it in a jar or can, then dispose of it in the dumpster with your kitchen trash. Only bodily waste and toilet paper should be flushed down toilets. All other items—including, but not limited to, diapers, tampons, tissues, cotton balls, Q-tips, kitty litter—do not belong down the toilet.
WORK ORDERS – Work orders can now be submitted online at the Bretton Woods website:
GARDEN HOSES – Please shut the water valve completely and wind up the hose after each use.
VANDALISM – Be aware, although Brettonwoods is a safe community, we are not immune from crime. Do not leave valuables in your vehicles, especially within view. Always lock your cars and homes.
BARBEQUES – Propane and charcoal grills are not permitted on Upper Lamont decks—only electric barbeques are allowed. All other units are permitted to have charcoal or propane barbeques, but they must be stored or used away from vinyl siding and fences. Do not leave barbeques unattended while in use.
