had a few e-mails returned because of address changes. Please update your
e-mail address if it has changed in the last year so you can continue to be
included in neighborhood messages. Your e-mail address is kept confidential
and will not be given to anyone for any reason. At election time we have
residents wanting to send e-mails about different causes. If you will send
them to me I will forward them to the neighborhood. If you have a different
opinion please respond to me and I will sent it also.
us are placing trash by the street that the trash service will not pickup
because of the content or size of the materials. Please be considerate of
our neighborhood and neighbors, when you need to have items removed or have
a question about what they will remove, call the county
Solid Waste dept. (803) 755-3325 or
Southland Sanitation Inc. 256-7276 they will be happy to answer any
questions you may have on items for pickup. Concerning yard trash remember
the 4 inch / 4 foot rule. Nothing will be picked up over 4 inchís in
diameter or 4 foot long. Southland Sanitation
will NOT pick up construction or building materials regardless of size. If
anyone has larger items you will have to make special arrangements to get it
to the collection center on Old Bush River Rd. They will accept yard
trash, garbage, appliances, batteries, used motor oil, tires, construction
or building materials, and many other items.
for someone to help re-condition our meeting signs. If you would like to
take on this project please let me know
PLEASE do not
tape ANYTHING to our signs; the tape is pulling the paint off. It is hard
enough keeping them looking good without old tape marks and missing paint.
Thanks to our neighborhood
volunteers for all of their help. See you at the meeting
