We would like to kindly remind everyone about trash & cardboard box disposal. There was an incident this weekend where a resident caused a gigantic trash chute backup when they stuffed the shoot full with large pieces of furniture and other articles. One of the chairs stuffed down the trash chute was not even taken apart, the entire thing stuffed down the shoot, which backed up the trash chute several floors high. In addition to the chairs, broken up furniture pieces, and other unauthorized articles stuffed down the shoot, there was a large door just left in the trash room – which is also against Solara Lofts rules.
We know nobody likes a clogged trash chute that stops working – so let’s all do our part and follow these simple rules:
Do not put any boxes down the trash chute
Break down boxes and dispose of broken down, flattened boxes in the trash room or in the recycling bins inside the garage
Follow the rule of thumb: if it’s larger than a 2L soda bottle, take it down the trash room for disposal
Seal all trash before throwing it down the trash chute
Large items such as mattresses, appliances, and furniture should NOT be left in the trash room or in common areas
Please call a junk or waste servicer for bulk item disposal for any large items
As winter season ended and we go into Spring 2021, here are some upcoming community projects that are on the schedule for Solara this year.
Roofing Project This project is currently anticipated to start in June/July 2021. Cornerstone will be the project manager overseeing this large-scale project. More details and information to come in the next few months.
Security Upgrades The Security Committee has been working tirelessly in evaluating the security concerns for the building, creating a scope of work for security upgrades, and interviewing vendors to provide feedback to the Board of Directors on how to proceed. Coming up this year will be upgrades to the security system, such as the cameras and access system. More details and information to come once a proposal has been approved!
