Trash, Recyling, Yard Waste & Hazardous Waste Items are becoming an eyesore in our community. To end the issues and improve the curb appeal of our community, the association will enforce compliance with our rules and regulations.
Failure to comply with the community rules and regulations will result in a violation/fine being assessed. First offense is $25; thereafter $50 PER OCCURRENCE.
THERE IS A NO TOLERANCE POLICY FOR LITTERING AND/OR DUMPING in our community. Violators will be fined for littering, and will also be charged the cost incurred by the association for cleanup of the dumped items.
The trash contractor is solicited by Caln Township. If there is an issue with service or items are not picked-up, it is the owners responsibility to contact Caln Township immediately, at (610) 384-0600, Ext 3, to address the issue.
