Once done leave it to cool down/till charcoals are completed spent before disposing of them in the trash dumpster. We had a dumpster fire because of hot charcoals.

We have set up a metal container by the tennis courts to dispose of charcoals.

- No plastic bags in the recycling bins. See below detailed list of what is acceptable and what is not.
- Take advantage of special recycling events and empty out your garage/storage space. See below for details.
- By parking your motorbike on the dedicated concrete slab in the Southwest corner of 7412, thus not using a precious parking lot space.
- On Tuesday evenings/Wednesday mornings, please do not park in the parking space to the left of the two dumpsters between 7316 and 3 bedroom building. Recycling company has notified us of issues accessing dumpster on collection day. Otherwise we may be forced to give up that parking space or the recycling dumpster.
- Barking dogs: Gassen and the site staff have received a number of calls complaining of dogs barking for long periods of time which annoys and disrupts other residents. Home owners with an annoying and disruptive barking dog can be fined. Should repeated violations continue the dog can be banned from Greensboro, or other actions taken. With the warm weather, open windows, patio doors and dogs out on balconies the barking and complaints increase. Please be considerate if you have a dog in your home.
- If you have a detached garage, please park your car in it. Parking is tight at Greensboro, so be considerate.
