YARD DEBRIS PROGRAM

MPHOA pays for and provides up to three green bins per single-family home that are picked up by Republic Services. Additional bins are available to homeowners by request from Republic Services. The homeowner is responsible for the additional fees incurred.

Yard Debris Bags
MPHOA does not pick up paper yard debris bags placed curbside. Any bags left curbside will be picked up by Republic Services and the homeowner will be charged accordingly.

Bin Delivery
Requested bin(s) are delivered on Fridays only.

Communication
Due to working outside of an office and out in the field, the landscape department’s primary mode of communication is email. Please ensure your email address is accurate by adding it to your contact information in your member portal account.

Container Storage & Curbside Collection
When not placed curbside to be collected, yard debris containers must be stored out of sight.

Missing, Damaged, or Returned Bins
If your bin is missing, damaged or you would like to return a bin, please reach out to us at yarddebris@mtparkhoa.com

Cancellation of Trash and Recycling
When you cancel your trash and recycling service with Republic Services you must notify the landscape department to collect yard waste bin(s) allocated to your address.

If you forget to do this, MPHOA will bill you (based on Republic’s rates) $65 dollar / bin.

By requesting and utilizing bin(s) provided by MPHOA, you acknowledge rules and charges associated with this service.

As a friendly reminder:

  • The yard waste bins are the property of MPHOA.
  • The HOA pays for the bins each week, regardless of usage.
  • The cost of each unused bin deducts resources from other MPHOA services.
  • MPHOA will periodically audit the existing system throughout the year.
  • Only accounts starting with the number one (1), classified as single family households are eligible for this service.
  • Single family household accounts that consistently under-utilize the service will be required to return unused bins or the cost will be added to those accounts.
  • Republic Services will bill residents for the usage of unlabeled bins.
  • All bins must be stored out of sight.
  • Garbage and recycle bins are managed by Republic Services.
