Dear management Team,

The Colony Cove HOA Board of Directors is requesting to be included in the plans or the planning of reopening community amenities.

CCHOA Board of Directors

RESPONSE:  2:59 PM May 6, 2020
From:  Leslie Register – Southern Regional Vice President:

Thank you for your message.  ELS has created a reopening policy and procedure which will be implemented in the upcoming days.  Our collaboration with The HOA board is valuable as we look for residents to comply with CDC guidelines.  We will share with you and the residents the plan as it is implemented.

Thank you,
Leslie Register, CPM

Recycle & Trash Collection

Many people recycle and many don’t. We guess the reason for not recycling, is they just don’t want to be bothered. Recycling is very important here in Colony Cove. 

This brings us to the most asked question at HOA meetings, and that is the “high” rents. Your rent is not the amount you pay each month, but is actually about $90.00 less than that amount. The $90.00 amount is what is called the “pass thru”. It represents all the cost we share equally for things such as water and sewer, lawn service, trash pickup, and a few other entities. Things that affect the pass thru directly are water conservation and indirectly recycling. The newspapers and “junk mail” deposited in the designated dumpsters at each hall are weighed and payment made to Colony Cove and credit is applied to our pass thru account thus lowering our pass thru charges.  Besides the revenue generated by the paper bins, recycling puts less trash in our landfills.  

The second area of recycling is aluminum cans and plastic and glass containers. We hope all Colony Cove residents are placing all their plastic and glass in the blue recycle containers. Doing so does not benefit Colony Cove in any way financially, but again it reduces land fill space and those water bottles return to us in many other plastic forms. Aluminum cans are another issue. We encourage all residents to recycle with the Colony Cove resident recycling program. This program directly benefits Colony Cove residents as all revenue generated goes to the HOA legal fund. The residents who volunteer to maintain this program work very hard and are dedicated to maintaining it. These volunteers collect our cans on a regular schedule, process them thru a can crusher to save space, and then transport them to a recycler for payment. This process has been successful on the north side of the community but not as much in the south side. Cans are collected every Monday in the lakes area and on the first Monday in the north. Pickup is scheduled on the 3rd Monday in the South side of Colony Cove. All you have to do is place your cans in a trash bag at the curb and our volunteers will pick them up for recycling. If you don’t want to wait for the scheduled pickup you can drop your cans off at the recycling center which is located in the mail box area at Ellenton Hall. There are also recycle containers at all halls for residents to place plastic, glass, and cans for recycling.

The most important thing with all the above is that it takes us, the residents of Colony Cove to have the same dedication to recycle as our volunteers have in collecting and processing those cans.  Remember this is your community and only you can make recycling a positive effort.
