Lower Parkade Breakin – April 10, 2021

This morning Saturday April 10th, repeat offenders came into the building at 3:28am and 5:49am this morning, using a garage door fob that we believe was stolen (they did not enter the main building and therefore we don’t have any footage of them, but this fob has now been disabled).

This is an unfortunate reminder that you should never keep your garage door opener, ID, or any valuables in your car; and it is extremely important that you wait till the garage door is closed before leaving the premises or after entering the parkade.

If your vehicle has been broken into, contact the police and your insurance. Above all, look after your own safety and do not confront an intruders yourself as there is often more than one person.

Important Note: If a resident is connected to a lost or stolen fob which is unreported, there will be a penalty of $200 dollars. We can’t stress this enough, it’s very important to report all broken, lost or stolen fobs as it effects all of us.

Did Your Junk Jam the Trash Chute?

Garbage chute found plugged again on Monday March 29th.

When the chute is jammed, we pay a penalty charge for having someone dislodge it. 

Stop putting oversized garbage down the chute or we will be forced to weld the doors shut and all residents will have to walk down their own garbage to the parkade

 

Is This Your Junk Jammed the Trash Chute?

Recycling Dos and Don’ts

recycle-yesrecycle-no

 

Bagged Recyclables Must be in a Clear Bag

Huntsman Recycling was Contaminated

Your container at 1334 13 AVE SW included non-recyclable materials during our service visit on 03/12/2021. As a result, you may be charged $56 plus applicable taxes and invoice charges*.

Contamination happens when trash gets into your recycling bin, food or liquids soil your recyclable materials, or when you put your recyclables in plastic bags. For recyclable materials to have a second life and create new products, they must be clean and free from contaminants.

Reminder: Garbage Chutes

Last night (Oct 5), the janitors were called for an ’emergency’ unblocking of the garbage chute. Someone had dropped a large plastic bucket down the garbage drop which blocked the exit. It took the janitors 3 hours to unblock the garbage because they had to go to each floor and remove garbage piled up since Tuesday.

As a reminder: the garbage chutes are not to be used for anything other than garbage that is bagged and securely tied in a ‘Safeway-style grocery bag’.

That means no pizza boxes, no planters, no buckets, no brooms, no large garbage bags, and definitely no unbagged garbage materials should ever be put down the garbage chute.

Please review the list of Huntsman rules and beware: any residents found to be violating these rules will be fined, and may be held accountable for any costs associated with the resolution of the issue.

There are garbage bins located on the lower parkade, where you can place large items in the bins, as well as a place to deposit any recycling. While it may be inconvenient to walk items like this downstairs the consequences of attempting to shove them down the garbage chute will ultimately cause major inconvenience for everyone else.

Please be thoughtful about the use of the garbage chute.

Cleaning Up After Your Pet is Your Responsiblity

Early Friday evening (Sept 22, 2017) dog poop was reported on the floor of the small elevator…apparently left there by a resident pet owner. A Board member was required to clean this up.

The lack of respect this demonstrates for other residents in the building is intolerable.

Pet ownership is a privilege not a right.

The rules regarding pet ownership are absolutely clear and picking up after your dog and properly disposing of pet litter is top of the list.

Be assured that any pet owner found to be in breach of pet ownership rules will be sanctioned to the fullest extent provided by our by-laws up to and including withdrawal of pet approval.
