Clothing and Housewares Recycling Collection

posted Dec 6, 2016, 9:28 AM by Stu Beam

A free new recycling service for curbside customers is now available: clothing and housewares collection. Collection is on customers’ regular recycling day and week.
Austinites who don’t receive curbside services from Austin Resource Recovery, such as those who live in apartments, can participate by dropping off clothing and housewares at the Recycle & Reuse Drop-Off Center
Austin Resource Recovery encourages Austinites to continue donating to charitable causes first and to use this new curbside service for items that would otherwise be thrown away.
How It Works
Austin Resource Recovery has partnered with an independent company – Simple Recycling – to collect clothing and housewares.
Use the green Simple Recycling bags that you received in the mail to collect items and put them next to your blue recycling cart on your recycling collection day. When Simple Recycling picks up a bag, they will leave a new one in its place. You can request additional bags online or call Simple Recycling at 866-835-5068.
Simple Recycling trucks will collect the bags, so they may be collected before or after your blue recycling cart is emptied on your recycling collection day. The green Simple Recycling bags will be recycled after the items are collected.
Items Collected
Many types of clothing and housewares are accepted, including the following:
        Clothing
  • Men’s, women’s and children’s clothing
  • Accessories
  • Shoes and boots
  • Hats
  • Purses
  • Fabric scraps
        Ho​usewares
  • Stuffed animals
  • Toys
  • Linens
  • Tools
  • Kitchenware
  • Books
Funding
This service is free of charge. Simple Recycling pays the City of Austin $20 per ton of material collected and keeps the remaining profits from the sale of the collected items. This allows them to make a profit while providing the service to the City and its residents free of charge.
Simple Recycling sells as many items for reuse as possible, first within the state of Texas, then nationally, then internationally. Items that cannot be reused are sold for recycling. Only items that cannot be reused or recycled are disposed of in the landfill.
Also, residents can go directly to Simple Recycling site at:  http://simplerecycling.com/
 
They have several cool graphics on their site and you can give me or them a call if you see something specific that will work for your outreach efforts.
 
You can reach the owner directly by phone (866) 835-5068

Successful Meeting

posted Apr 27, 2016, 6:59 PM by Stu Beam

Thanks to everyone that attended the 2016 Annual HOA meeting tonight. We had a great turn out which is the best in several years. A special thanks to Council Member Ann Kitchen for the valuable information provided and to the folks that addressed their concerns. For those of you that could not make it, we will continue to keep you informed so you can be involved. See you around the community.

Community Involvement

posted Oct 11, 2015, 4:15 PM by Stu Beam   [ updated Jul 20, 2016, 8:21 AM ]

To make community events happen, we need your help. The HOA board cannot do all the work by themselves. WE NEED YOUR HELP. If you wish to help, please let us know. We need folks to come up with ideas and make a plan. You can always contact the HOA board under the Board of Directors link. We hope to hear from you.

Again, we need your help to make this community a wonderful place to live and provide great events for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for being part of your community.

Top Reasons Why a Homeowner Would Receive a Violation Letter

posted Jun 11, 2015, 6:32 AM by Stu Beam

In order to keep our community looking great and increase compliance towards the rules and regulations, the violation fines have been increased. The first letter a homeowner receives is a friendly reminder of the noted violation. The second is a warning. Once the homeowner gets the third letter, a fine is levied for $50.00. The next letter will be $100.00 then $150.00 and so on. To avoid any fines, please comply to the rules and lets make our community a beautiful one.

The following are the most common reasons a homeowner would receive a violation letter which could result in fines. All the rules and regulations for our community are located in our Resource Center (http://www.crossingatonioncreek.com/resource-center).

  1. Lawn / Landscape Maintenance and Trees or Bushes Blocking Sidewalk

Be kept in neat and well groomed condition and appearance, with all trees, shrubs and plantings properly pruned, yards regularly mowed, edged and raked and all areas kept free of trash, debris, weeds and overgrowth. Each Owner shall keep all trees, shrubs,

grass, and plantings in such Owner's Lot or Lots free of disease and insects consistent with good horticultural practice.

  1. Trash or Recycle Bin Visible (other than on pickup dates)

Refuse, garbage and trash shall be kept at all times in covered containers and all such containers shall at all times be kept within an enclosed structure or appropriately screened from view of all adjacent property and public and private rights-of-way; provided, however, garbage containers shall be permitted to be placed outside of enclosed structures and may be removed from screened areas a maximum of two (2) times each week, for no longer than twelve (12) hours each time, for garbage collection.

  1. Commercial / Unauthorized Vehicle Parking

Parking of commercial vehicles or equipment, mobile homes, recreational vehicles, boats and other watercraft, trailers, stored vehicles or inoperable vehicles in places other than enclosed garages is prohibited; provided, construction, service and delivery vehicles may be exempt from this provision for such period of time as is reasonably necessary to provide service or to make a delivery to a residence.

  1. Inoperative or Disabled Vehicles

No junk vehicles or equipment, spare vehicle or equipment parts or other article deemed to be unsightly by the Board shall be permitted to remain on any Lot so as to be visible from adjoining property or public or private rights-of-way.

  1. Trash or Unsightly Debris on Property

No rubbish or debris of any kind shall be placed or permitted to accumulate upon the Property or any portion thereof unsanitary, unsightly, offensive, or detrimental to any other property or to its occupants.

  1. Unapproved changes/modifications to residence

No Improvement may be constructed, altered or removed on or from any Lot or portion of the Property without the prior written approval of the Architectural Committee. Any action, other than normal maintenance, which in any way alters the exterior appearance of any Improvement, including, without limitation, its color, or which involves the removal of any Improvement or the alteration of the landscaping on a Lot, shall be performed only with the prior approval of the Architectural Committee.
