What Do I Do If My Trash/Recycling Wasn’t Picked Up?
 
On occasion, our trash and recycling company will skip a home or even an entire block during their scheduled pickups. While we cannot prevent these occasional mistakes from occurring, we can assist you when they do. Should this ever happen to you, we ask that you notify the Community Manager at mgr@pineycreek.org as soon as possible. This will allow us to reach out to our representatives with the company in an effort to get the matter resolved as quickly as possible. We do encourage you to contact Waste Management at 303-797-1600, but notifying us should be your first step.
 
You are also free to call the Onsite Community Manager at 303-699-8069 to report these problems, although email is preferred and allows for a quicker transfer of information to Waste Management.
 

Waste Management Toters are available at no cost
(All filings except the Overlook)
 
As part of the HOA contract with Waste Management, toters are available to homeowners at no charge.  Homeowners have the option to use their own trash receptacles, or request a 96 gallon trash toter, recycling toter, or both. 
 
If you would like to receive a toter please email the Community Manager at mgr@pineycreek.org so he may notify Waste Management for you.  The Association will notify Waste Management on a weekly basis of requests. Waste Management will then deliver your toters to your residence within the following two weeks.  We ask that you put your requests through the onsite office in order for the Association to be able to track how many homeowners are participating.
 
Please take a moment when determining whether or not or get a toter that you have space to store the toter in accordance with the Association’s Rules.
 
Piney Creek Guidelines
 
All trash, refuse, rubbish, garbage, and other waste shall be kept in closed containers. These containers shall be kept within the garage, or if placed outside shall be screened from the view of any public or private property using approved means.
 
Trash is not to be placed on the curb prior to 6pm the evening before collection. Cans and bins must be removed from the street the day of garbage collection and returned to your garage or enclosure.
