Trash Delayed – Again

As you may have noticed our trash was not picked up this week. Our contractor, American Disposal, is saying they will be coming thru on Tuesday to get it.

To say that we are disappointed with the quality of service as of late would be an understatement. We have a meeting scheduled with our representative from American Disposal for tomorrow and will keep you in the loop on developments.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Trash Pickup Delayed Until Saturday

Yet another notice of delay from our trash contractor:

Due to circumstances beyond our control stemming from a field staffing shortage, the scheduled TRASH collection for today, FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 2019 will not be performed. Service will be provided on SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 2019. Please be assured any overflow that may have accumulated will be collected when we return.

Common-Area and Private Walkways Power Washing

On Monday, May 13th, our common-area walkways will be power washed by a contractor we have hired. We ask that you please remove any personal property from all common-area walkways prior to the morning of May 13th so as not to impede this work.

The contractor will need access to water to perform the job and has asked for permission to connect to the outside faucets of a few (yet to be determined) townhomes throughout our cluster. We will be keeping track of whose water supply is tapped and issuing reimbursement checks in the amount of $15 for each affected townhome, which should more than cover the cost of any water used. If you object to having your water used please let us know by May 12th either by calling 202.683.7393 or emailing

Last, if you would like to have your individual private walkway power washed, the one leading to your front door, the contractor has agreed to provide this service for $35 per townhome, also on May 13th. You will need to drop off cash or a check in an envelope with your unit number, prior to May 13th at 10947 HSC (with Stan Beyderman, the Board Secretary).

Harpers Square Easter Egg Hunt

Hi everyone. Would anyone be interested in joining us for an Easter egg hunt at the end of the cul-de-sac on Harpers Square Court on Easter Sunday, (which is April 21 this year)? We have the plastic eggs and can fill and hide them that morning if anyone is interested in hunting for them with Baby Anna. If you would like to join us, send Meg an email at, and we will find the right time to accommodate schedules that day and make sure we have enough eggs and adult supervision. ~Meg, Dan, and Baby Anna

No Dumping Leaves in Common Areas Please

Our landscaping crews have recently come through to do the spring cleanup. Since then it was reported that someone dumped their leaves in the common area parking lot.

We kindly ask that you abstain from dumping your leaves and lawn debris into any common areas and if you have recently done so we ask that you remove them and dispose of them in a bag with your trash.

Thank you,
