Lake Ridge Loves to Give Back
Toys for Tots: The Marine Corps Toys for Tots program collects new, unwrapped toys to give to children in need. Bring your donations to the Association office from November 25th to December 16th. We always receive at least a few full boxes worth of toys each year and are proud of this community's generous spirit!
Warm Donations: Drop off new scarves, gloves and hats to the Association office through December 30th to keep those less fortunate warm this winter. Items will be donated to the local ACTS Homeless Shelter.
What to Do with Your Leaves
Association Removal: Leaf pick up on Association-owned turfed common areas is done from October to mid-March (weather and conditions permitting). We ask that homeowners bag leaves from their yards and dispose of them on yard waste pick-up day.
Trash Pickup: Please remember that there is an 8-bag limit on leaves on yard waste pick-up day. Yard waste pick-up day is your last scheduled trash pick-up day of the week. Putting the leaves out later in the week helps with pick-up of trash from the weekend when they pick up earlier in the week. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
