Trash Compactor
Do not push the Emergency Stop button unless it is an emergency.  This causes the compactor to cease operation and fill up.  If you feel there is a problem with the compactor, please do not just leave your trash outside of the compactor, contact the guard house at 727-822-0783, so that the issue can be corrected immediately.
If you must leave your trash due to time constrains, you are expected to contact the guard house and advise.  This is the main reason that trash piles up outside of the compactor.

Please do your part and help keep this area clean, by not pushing the emergency stop button pictured on the right and if there is a problem, contact the guard house at 727-822-0783.

The Association Rules and Regulations, #6 Trash Disposal states:

Disposition of garbage and trash shall be only by use of receptacles approved by the Association or by use of garbage disposal units. Trash must be taken by owners, their tenants or their guests to the trash compactor on property and cannot be left in common areas or limited common elements (i.e. on balconies or patios) at any time. Compactors are not for construction related trash, nor are owners/tenants allowed to leave old furniture, appliances or other large items at the compactor. Owners/tenants are responsible to remove the above items at their expense off the premises. Owners, tenants and guests are responsible for keeping the limited common areas appurtenant to their unit and common areas directly in front of their unit free of litter. Examples of litter include but are not limited to cigarette butts, candy wrappers and gum, animal feces or bags containing animal feces, empty alcohol cans and bottles. Litter should be removed immediately by the owner, tenant or guest of the unit. Any resident found breaking this rule may be subject to a fine.

Please do not put anything down your toilets.  The top causes of our sewer problems in Waterside are from items that should not be flushed down the toilet even if they are marked as biodegradable:
  • Wipes – Baby wipes, disinfectant wipes, moist wipes, etc.
  • Paper Towels, napkins (paper or cloth), facial tissue
  • Feminine Hygiene Products
  • Dental Floss
  • Condoms
  • Q-Tips
  • Toilet bowl scrub pads or cleaners of any kind
  • Diapers
Additionally, we suggest that even if your unit is equipped with a garbage disposal that you do not dispose of food particles or other trash down the disposal.  This can cause a backup in your unit and adjacent units.

Plumbing repairs can be costly.  The Association is only responsible for "sewer lines, up to the point where they enter the Unit."  Therefore, this can be a costly repair for the unit owner.  We suggest unit owners advise their tenants regarding proper disposal.

Air-Conditioning Maintenance and Repair
Please remember to maintain your air-conditioning condensation drain line.  This can be a source of water leakage into your unit should the drip pan overflow.  Please contact your air-conditioning professional for help and advice on properly maintaining your unit.

Please note that any and all maintenance of an A/C unit located within a unit, including, but not limited to the air conditioning condensation drain line, are the responsibility of the unit owner.  Please review your condo docs, specifically the Declaration of Condominium, Section 7, Maintenance and Repairs, and specifically, Section 7.2(b)(iv) which states that the Unit Owner is responsible to maintain, repair and replace: “Any and all appliances and mechanical, ventilating, heating and air conditioning equipment contained within and serving the Unit;” and Section 7.1(d) which states the Association shall manage, maintain, repair and replace “air-conditioning condensation drain lines, up to the point where they enter the Unit” only.
Hanging Items from the Balcony
Please do not hang anything that requires hooks or hangers being drilled or screwed into the wood on the balconies.  Anything that causes damage to wood trim of the common or limited common elements is not allowed.  Additionally, after all of the balcony repairs doing so can void our warranties.  Thank you.
