When should dues be paid and what are they used for?

Dues are collected in January for the upcoming year.  For example, $25 is due by Jan 31, 2020 which covers Jan.1-Dec. 31, 2020.  Generally, this money funds neighborhood parties, island/neighborhood beautification, communications (website, email, flyers, directory, etc.), welcome packets, and city worker appreciation (police & fire gift cards).  We keep a fund in the off chance we need a lawyer for indenture projects, trustee issues, and other non-standard safeguards.*

When is Trash/Recycling/Yard Waste Pickup Schedule?
Recycling Best Practices:

Recycling is available to all residents and is collected once a week.  All recyclables should be rinsed.  All materials are to be placed in a designated and labeled recycling bin provided by the resident or rented through Republic Services. In Clayton, we have single stream recycling, which mean you can throw all recycling in one bin.  Below is a list of items that can be recycled as well as a quick reference sheet with guidelines on what should not be recycled.
