Horizon Crest Community Association
We’re sorry to report, we won’t be able to have neighborhood-wide yard waste dumpsters this year. The City of Bellevue has started enforcing their long-standing prohibition on placing these on the street. In the future, we will explore other sites, such as Lattawood Park, or private driveways. But for this year, we’ll have to skip this very popular HCCA benefit.
If you have extra yard waste to dispose of, you can put out up to four 32-gallon containers each week for Tuesday pickup. Branches must be cut to less than four-foot lengths, and less than 4-inch diameter.
You can also take yard waste to the King County Transfer Station in the Factoria area for a fee.
In light of the COVID situation, and with lower dues income this year, we have modified our planned activities for the rest of the year:
- We will have two yard waste dumpsters in the neighborhood for yard cleanup. Since every neighbor is an HCCA member this year, every neighbor can use them! We will plan to have the dumpsters over two full weekends in the near-ish future. The specific days are yet to be confirmed. We will let you know in a follow up notice.
- We are canceling the neighborhood picnic, traditionally held in mid-July. It is probable that social distancing restrictions will still be in force then.
- We will plan to have a lower-key neighborhood gathering in the fall, or when restrictions are loosened. We’d love to hear your suggestions on what that gathering will be!
Since Saturday, King County is now in “Modified Phase 1” of the state’s Safe Start plan. Many more services are open including personal care, household services, pet grooming, car washes, construction, and others. You can find the details on Modified Phase 1, and other COVID safety tips on the county’s website.
