Many common household materials are considered hazardous and need disposal. When Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is disposed in the trash, it can contaminate landfills and subsequently ground water. This event provides a free and safe alternative for residents to rid their homes of potentially dangerous materials. Below is a list of acceptable and non-acceptable items for the November 16th collection event:
• ACCEPTED ITEMS: rechargeable household and automobile batteries, motor oil and filters, LATEX paint, antifreeze, small appliances and scrap metal. Used motor oil will be limited to 15 gallon. All liquids are required to be in sealed, non-leaking containers that are labeled as to their contents.
• ITEMS NOT ACCEPTED: business, medical and agricultural waste; oil-based paints, solvents, flammables, pesticides, herbicides and other similar hazardous materials, and electronic waste.

|Over the weekend, we had several vehicles locked and unlocked broken into in KWPV and Trailwood Village. On Saturday and Sunday morning, my neighbor had both his personal and company trucks gone through. Unfortunately his trucks were unlocked.
One block south of Mills Creek Court, a resident on Sunday morning at approx. 4am returning from work, observed suspicious activities. When approached, one male took off on a bike the other was apprehended. A gun was located behind a wheel of a truck. Police were dispatched and the young male was arrested. The two males are white, approx. 15 to 16 yrs olds, from the Kingwood area and both might have been armed. It was all caught on security cameras.
Please remember to report such activities, no matter how small you might think the crime is, this helps the police in solving cases.
Also please reduce the opportunities, secure your personal possessions, lock the vehicles, keep your garage doors closed and be SAFE!
Waste Management recently updated their sticker program informational
sheets. They are currently running audits of non-paying customers and
plan to send communication out to homeowners that have not set up a WM
account. In addition, their drivers are making sure that homeowners have
stickers before servicing. In the past they’ve done random audits, but
there is a push for no sticker then no service. If you have not received
the sticker in a timely manner, please call immediately to report it. View details on how it works.
Looking for residents to sponsor our Night Out Against Crime. If you are interested, please contact Ethel at Kingwood Management Association. ([email protected])
