    Trash and recycling pick up days are Tuesday or Friday, depending on the village. Residents are asked to ensure trash and recycling containers are put away at the end of each trash day.
    Empty containers are light and tend to fall over causing road hazards on windy days and also take away from the curb appeal within the community.
    Trash and recycling containers must be covered and stored in designated locations. Containers can be put out after 8 p.m. on the evening before pick-up day and must be removed from the curb and returned to storage areas by 8 p.m. the day of pick up. Contact the Maintenance Office at (913) 651-3838 if trash pick-up is missed.
    In addition, recycling services are available for paper, glass, cardboard, plastics and aluminum cans. There are several recycling containers around post as well as the recycling collection point at 740 W. Warehouse Road.
    Household hazardous waste items should never be placed in trash bins. Household hazardous waste can be dropped off in the basement of 810 McClellan Ave. weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. There are also outside drop-off cabinets that can be used after hours. Products should be kept in their original containers, when possible. Household hazardous waste includes automotive products, home improvement products, paint, varnish, paint thinner, paint stripper, caulk and adhesives, pesticides, household cleaners, batteries, cosmetics, lighter fluid, and arts and crafts materials. E-waste is also accepted at the collection point, including computers, cell phones, cameras, modems, monitors, televisions, printers, game systems and general electronics. Used motor oil and antifreeze can be dropped off at the Auto Craft Center at 911 McClellan Ave. or at an off-post garage.
    Fall yard maintenance
    Beginning this week Barren Outdoor Solutions is performing bi-weekly yard maintenance.
    Residents are asked to put all toys, garden hoses, patio furniture and any other belongings away before the scheduled mowing day. FLFHC will not be responsible for damages or failure to mow areas where items are left out. Residents are responsible for mowing, trimming and edging within their fenced in areas.
    Lawn clippings and leaves can be bagged and left on the curb for pick up on scheduled maintenance days. Barren will also be scheduling shrub and bush trimming.
    Yard maintenance is subject to change as needed; in case of inclement weather, work will be completed the following day.
    Offices closure
    All FLFHC offices, including the Self Help Store, will be closed Oct. 14 in observance of Columbus Day. In case of an emergency or to submit a work order, call the 24-hour maintenance line at (913) 651-3838.
