Trash pickup and homeowner interactions with the Best trash company come up often. To assist homeowners, here are some important considerations to make this important service effective for everyone:
Please put out your trash on the morning of the pickup, if possible, so the unsightly cans and bins are not left on the curb for an extended period. Recycling bins must be at the curb but trash containers can be at the garage or the curb. After trash pickup, we ask you to remove the recycle bin from the curb and bring your trash bin up off the curb the same day for the same reason. Letters are sent out to homeowners who leave their bins and cans out longer than one day. If you have any questions or issues, please let Crest Management know about it.
Green Trails II is currently experiencing Pine Bark Beetle infestations. Please report any trees you suspect may be infested to Crest Management for prompt removal to prevent infestation of more trees. Trees on homeowner's property are their responsibility. Look for rapid browning, red sawdust on the ground or tiny holes in the bark (exit holes). Beetles are drawn to trees in stress, hit by lightning, impacted by drought, etc. New beetles can exit the tree and fly a mile to infest a new tree or re-enter the same tree. Most of the time, the damage is advanced before it is noticed and the tree is completely brown within a couple of days.
Green Trails has recently experienced a bit more vandalism which is a concern. The tennis/pickleball courts at Park Cypress have been damaged on more than one occasion and there are reports of youngsters using the pool and courts after hours when they are closed. We all pay for the damages and so we ask you all to keep a vigilant eye out for anyone who is improperly using or damaging our facilities anywhere within Green Trails. If you see anything, please report it to the constable (or to Heather at Crest, if you are more comfortable) so they are aware of what is happening and we can maintain a high level of safety and quality in our community.
Wild rodents (chipmunks, squirrels, mice, rats, muskrats) and rabbits are well-adapted to living in urban, suburban, and rural environments. In addition, many types of rodents have become popular "pocket" pets (hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs) along with domestic rabbits and hedgehogs. These animals can harbor diseases that can make people sick. Wild rodents also serve as the reservoir for many vectorborne diseases (diseases spread by ticks and mosquitoes) such as babesiosis, typhus, Lyme disease, Powassan virus, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, to name a few.
Symptoms : Symptoms may include fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, headache, loss of appetite, joint pain.

Please take your own precautions to care for your family by taking as many of these prevention measures as possible.
