The MPOA Board has selected Disposal Services, LLC as the new trash vendor for the association effective May 1, 2023. Homeowners that are not part of a sub-association that desire service with the new hauler will need to sign up directly with MPOA for the new service and pay the MPOA for trash services as an Additional Expense as per Section 5.7 of the Amended Declaration, which will be billed directly to their account. Homeowners that live in a sub-association, also have the opportunity to opt-in through their respective sub-association Board of Directors. Sub-association communities must opt-in as a whole community for this trash service and will be billed directly by their sub-association.
The hauler will service homeowners not living in a sub-association 1x per week for trash/recycling/yard waste at a cost of $15.95/month per lot. This rate is locked in for 3 years. Each lot will receive two new tote containers, one for trash and one for recycling, each 96-gallons in size at NO ADDITIONAL EXPENSE (no more rental fees!). Service will occur on the same day for trash, recycling, and yard waste to reduce the amount of traffic in the community throughout the week. Homeowners that reside in a sub-association should contact their Board of Directors for their respective sub-association on the details and status of their trash services.

Sub-associations can opt-in for trash services with Disposal Services but must opt-in as a whole to take advantage of this new service. Homeowners within a sub-association should contact their respective sub-association Board of Directors for the status of your trash services.
The sole exception to changing an opt-in/out selection outside of the annual opt-in/out period will be for new homeowners that are not part of a sub-association. New homeowners of these lots will have the ability to change their seller’s previous election for trash service within thirty (30) days of closing on their home by providing written notice to the MPOA office. If a homeowner does not opt-in or opt-out (does nothing) within the thirty (30) day period of closing on their home, trash services will automatically default to the previous owner's selection.

Billing for Trash Service:

This letter will be mailed separate from their assessment coupon book and the approved MPOA budget.
