Dear Barton Road Residents,
The WHA has planned our annual summer “clean out” for this week- Monday, May 2nd, 2022 – and Monday, May 9th, 2022.   Dumpsters will be available for residents to dispose of unwanted items. Items such as tires, mattresses, couches, appliances, and other large/heavy items should be placed next to the dumpsters. Residents are encouraged to dispose of any unwanted items from inside their unit, inside their storage shed, and around the exterior of their unit.
If anyone is unable to remove bulk items, please call the office by Thursday, May 5th to allow maintenance to come by and assist in moving such items.
Please use this “clean out” as an opportunity to ensure you pass inspection and abide by the outdoor/grounds policy.
Please read the “outdoor/grounds policy” below. It will provide guidance on what is allowed and what is not allowed outside your unit. This is your opportunity to remove items that do not comply with the outdoor/grounds policy. 
The outdoor/grounds policy will be enforced as of May 10, 2022. Residents who are not in compliance will be cited, and given an opportunity to remove any non-allowable items from the exterior of their unit. Residents who do not remove the cited items will have the items removed by the WHA staff, and they will be charged all applicable dump fees.
