|The HOA TRASH CONTRACT: Useful Information|
See our Calendar page:
Next One Bulky Item pickup Tuesday March 20, 2018
|Question:||How is Trash collected in Bel-Air Heights?|
The HOA offers to residences of the Bel-Air Heights and Rolling Hills neighborhood as part of its HOA dues trash collection services at a very favorable rate.
As a result, almost every residence in the neighborhood is a member of the HOA.
A few home owners elect private contracts costing from $270 to $360+ per year.
The HOA re-bid the trash contract with Deffenbaugh, now Waste Management, for 2016.
The Board negotiated and signed a new 5-year Trash Disposal Service contract per April 2016 that has allowed a 10% reduction in the HOA dues to $180 per year per April 1, 2016.
The 3% contractual increase resulted in 2017-2018 HOA dues of $185 per year.
