Have you noticed that Waste management is leaving notices on recycle bins? Or even worse, sending fines for non-recyclable items in recycle bins? CalRes Residential Property Management team has noticed and is reminding tenants in HOA/condos as well as residential homes to be aware of what you can put in your recycle bin. The #1 fine we are seeing is for putting plastic bags & contaminated items (food) in the recycle bin. For more information on what you can recycle – check out the Waste Management website for recycling tips.
Beach Bluff Safety
This article about our local beach bluffs getting some additional funding caught our eye. We love our beaches here in North County and are so happy to see resources being allocated to make them safe.
The 2020 Census kicks off next week, being counted can make a big difference for the future of our community. The next 10 years of funding for our schools, plans for highways and support for firefighters is determined with the census. Things like special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after school programs and school lunch assistance funding levels are determined with the census. When you think of Carlsbad, you think of our great schools, please make sure you complete the 2020 Census.
You can respond to the 2020 census online, by phone or by mail.
Slow down & enjoy the ride
The City of Carlsbad has implemented traffic calming methods to help keep our traffic speed streets down. You may have noticed the speed pillows (wider than a speed bump) on several streets around town. Thanks for slowing down and keeping our streets & kiddos safe.
