Fall Cleanup Scheduled for October 13

Whether you've been doing major yard work or cleaning out the basement, you've got stuff you need to get rid of.  Bring it down to the RRF parking lot to the large commercial dumpster Rockwood HOA has scheduled for October 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  

Please note certain items cannot such as batteries and tires cannot be accepted. For information on where you can safely dispose of those items, please see the Recycling information below.

Volunteers are needed to help unload and manage the dumpster.  Just show up that morning if you can help.

Recreational Facility Park Open

The pool may be closed but the volleyball courts and park are open for your enjoyment.

A doggy bag dispenser is at the front of the park area - please help keep our park clean.

New this fall, there is now a pickleball court (although slightly narrower than a standard court) in the park.  The posts are there, you are welcome to bring your own net and rackets. During the summer months, rackets and balls are available at the pool office.

SAFETY FIRST - The days are getting darker earlier, Please slow it down & watch for kids out on their bikes and people out walking, especially around the RRF!!  Walkers - Please wear light colored , even reflective, clothing to be more visible to traffic.

RRF Dumpster Use - Please Be Considerate of Neighbors

The dumpster in the Recreational Facility parking lot is available for your use if space is available in the dumpster.  PLEASE, if you take items to the dumpster, and it is full, DO NOT place items on top of or on the ground around the dumpster.  Please, ask your contractors  to dispose of refuse properly, NOT in the RRF dumpster.  Your neighbors, not trash service personnel, are the ones cleaning up the area.

Got a big clean up project going on soon?   A large commercial sized dumpster will be the RRF parking lot in October and April.  Watch for more information closer to the dates.
