You Can Still Get It Picked- UpReply: Cindy Ferry
There is a missing post on this site.  I have pasted below an e-mail about how they are addressing the mix-up with the curbside and market pick-up project:

 
Below is the reply from Debbie Walsh, legislative assistant to Supervisor Bob Buster:
Cindy,

Anyone who was missed on Saturday's curbside cleanup can simply contact the route manager Jose Bravo at jbravo@wm.com to schedule a pickup this week. This pickup will not count against the 2 bulky item pickups per year each resident is allowed.

They can also contact Julie Reyes for questions regarding how the fliers were mailed out.
Reyes, Julie ý[jmreyes@wm.com]ý

If for some reason residents did not get a flier or were missed on Saturday they should contact Waste Management to get their items picked up this week.

The trash trucks went through the area two times, but still items can be missed. The e-waste, appliances and metal was picked up by another group of drivers after the regular trash trucks drove by. These drivers are not as familiar with the area and we did catch many of these items at the curb, which we called in to Jose Bravo to have picked up on Saturday.

At Gavilan Park, Waste Management did both curbside and allowed residents to bring their items to the roll offs. Some residents who live outside of the Park and did not get their items to the curb in time were allowed to use the roll offs at the Gavilan Market to get rid of any unwanted items.

It is still not too late to get rid of bulky items, e-waste and appliances this week by contacting Waste Management at jbravo@wm.com. Anyone who has any problems can contact me at dwalsh@rcbos.org. Supervisor Buster sponsors this event each year and we want to make sure that all residents are able to participate and all items are picked up.

Thanks.

Clean Up DayReply: JB
@Cindy...I don't know what fliers everyone else got, but the one that was taped to my fence does NOT state 'curbside pick up' ANYWHERE  on it .  It strictly states the location as "Gavilan Hills Market"

I think, in light of all the miscommunication/disorganization, there should be another date designated to get this done and done effectively and correctly!  **And give a more advanced and thorough notice**.

Curbside Pick-Up Never Happened For Some Residents Sat.Reply: Cindy Ferry

Thank you Debbie. I also heard from Lily, at Waste Management, that I had sent a post to this morning as well. She is turning it over to Julie Reyes. I'll wait to see what I hear from her. I do appreciate you and Lily both getting back to the community in such a reasonable amount of time. I'm glad to hear there is a way to still get their items picked up. It was such a worthwhile goal and I just hated the thought of it not going over well. Hopefully we can make it a yearly thing out here and be able to do more to keep the area cleaned up. It was an excellent opportunity for everyone. Maybe we just needed a little more planning time between the county and Waste management. I hope it goes better next year. I'll let everyone know they can still get their things picked up.

Construction Materials Not AllowedReply: Cindy Ferry
Yes, when I called to see what the limits were, we wanted to put some old, broken bricks we had from one of the rentals and wanted to put it in the bin collection for Gavilan Park, mobile homes. They told us no construction materials would be allowed, brick, plywood, molding, flashing or so on. I guess that was to keep construction people from filling the thing up with their work materials or something.
I'm just wondering why they didn't pick up the TV's in the areas they did pick-up, when TV's is on the flier as an item they would pick-up. With this new conversion with the TV's so many TV's are no longer any good. I can see why so many were out at the curb. We had four out there ... out there still.

Curbside Pick-Up Never Happened For Some Residents Sat.Reply: Cindy Ferry
Debbie, we had some problems with the "Lake Mathews & Gavilan Hills Community Curbside Pick-Up Day" this last Sat. We reached a number of families and a fair number of them did take advantage of the opportunity to clear out some of their put off disposal of large items and green waste. You could drive down the roadways and see all the stuff out at the curb. Many in the Gavilan Park Mobile Home Park did the same, as well as many of them bringing their stuff direct to the bins at the market. My husband brought stuff from our rentals to the bins and residents from Gavilan Park also commented on the community list sites about how the bins and curbside collection went.
Unfortunately we did have some hitches in the get-along. It seems that though some waste trucks were seen in the area, many never got them items picked up ... my home being one of them. We put it all out there Fri. night, to be sure it was out there by 6 a.m. Sat. and no one came to pick it up. Then, later that day I went down the hill and saw a number of properties with items still sitting at the curb. This was around 3 p.m. The bins at the Gavilan Hills Ranch Market were now gone and no trash truck were seen for the rest of the day.
People in at Gavilan Park (the mobile home park) were told they could place at the curb or bring to the bins. Those that placed at the curb found some things taken, but not all ... mostly a problem with TV's not being picked up. TV's were listed on the flier as items that could be put out for pick-up.
What happened and how do we now get these things picked up from in front of these homes? Mon. is regular trash collection day, but it is also Columbus Day and the county offices are closed. I have put in a post to Lily at Waste Management. I do hope I can get some good word to the community. Please get back to and let me know what we can do to correct this problem and get the community cleaned ... LOL ... now that it's all at the curb. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.

Community Curbside Day Had Problems/Need Your Help & InputReply: Cindy Ferry
Lily, who can I speak with about this last weekends "Lake Mathews & Gavilan Hills Community Curbside Pick-up Day"? We clearly had some kind of miscommunication problem. Fliers said it was a curbside pick-up of large items, TV's being one of those items. Many of our residents did get the notice and did put things out. However, no one from Waste Management came to pick the things up. Then bins were brought in for the residents in the mobile home park. I was told by Debbie Walsh, at Supervisor Bob Buster's office that the residents of the mobile home park could either place their items at the curb or bring them to the bins. Many used the bins and others did place at the curb. Again, their items were not picked up, though a truck was seen going through the Gavilan Park. The other residents in Greater Lake Mathews were told to place at the curb and that the bins were not for their use. So, they placed at the curb and no one came to pick up the items ... my family being one of them.
Many of the residents have left the items at the curb hoping they will be picked up today with regular trash collection. Can you please advise me what I should be reporting to the community on this mix-up? I understand that being Columbus Day the county offices will be closed. I therefore cannot get word to Debbie Walsh or Supervisor Bob Buster until tomorrow. I look forward to hearing back from you and giving input to the community.

My Curbside pick-up went wellReply: Michael D
Truck came by mid-morning to pick up assorted bulky items that I put out Friday night. They pulled out a piece of metal ducting about 4 feet long and left it on the curb. I will just put it into the bin for regular Monday pick-up.

Clean UpReply: PARKLADY
There should have been more notice to how people were to get rid of the things they had.. Yes i  made 3 truck loads to the market but my daugter didn't get a notice on her fence other people across the street got notices.  I'm sure they would have had more of a turn out if they would have better directions.

CLEAN-UP FROM WM NOT PICKED UP TODAYReply: Shrinsky
Our big items were not picked up, just the small stuff.  We even call in advance and asked to have some large items pick up.  Our neighbor had the same problem.

WASTE PICK UPReply: JB
I was under the impression it was simply drop off at the market...I will know better to call and ask questions next time.  Woke to the sound of the trucks picking up things from the neighbor's houses.  It would have been nice to have added "pick up curbside also available upon request" on the flyer that was posted. Then I would have had a clue :/    Luckily I don't have much in the way of trash on my property at this time ...yay!!

Did You Get You Waste Clean Up Picked Up Today?Reply: Cindy Ferry
The curbside pick-up was to be today and we put stuff out but, no one ever came by and picked it up. Did anyone else run into this same problem? I know they had the bins out for the mobile home park, over at the Gavilan Hills Ranch Market and people were taking stuff over there. Today was to be both, bins and curbside.

Gavilan Park Clean-up Project-Sat. Oct. 8/7 a.m. to 3 p.m.Post: Cindy Ferry
 
I just got a call/update on the clean-up drive by the County of Riverside/Supervisor Bob Buster's office and Waste Management. The clean-up project for the mobile home park will be this Sat. from 7 to 3 p.m. No hazardous materials. You can bring old washers, driers and so on. Debbie said there would be two or three of the roll-on bins, maybe as many as 4 ... for them to better able to sort the stuff in to the appropriate bin. Please pass the word around to anyone and everyone you know in the mobile home park. Debbie (legislative assistant for Bob Buster) said that there will be someone coming through the mobile home park to hand out the fliers, since it's such short notice and they just got permission from the Gavilan Hills Ranch Market to place the roll-on bins on their property. I'm not sure if it will be at the Idaleona end or at the store end, using the main driveway as the way in and out. Debbie will be sending me the flier and I will scan it and put it out over the community sites. The flier will also have the map for the exact location of the roll-on bins.
I'll be putting it out over Lake Mathews Talks, RAGLM Notice and RAGLM.org. If you know of others, are on other list sites, own/run/monitor other sites in the area, please post it as well, so we can reach as many there in the park as we can.
