There has been some confusion about where to dispose of kitty litter. Old-timers may remember using ONLY the small round can, but Gustavo prefers to use ALL of the non-recyling cans, which means the three large, black, square cans in addition to the small round one. Please do NOT put kitty litter into the recycling cans or down the chute. Thanks!

[edit] Compactor Repaired!

10-23-2008 Hurray! And many thanks to the Board, Criscelda and all who helped get this done. Here's the official notice:

"The compactor has been repaired and is available for use. I would like to caution you that large bags of garbage should NOT be thrown into the compactor. In addition to this, please do not throw kitty litter, glass and recyclable iems into the compactor as this will cause the compactor to malfunction. Instead, please place your refuse into small plastic bags and properly tie them up before discarding them into the compactor. This simple action will drastically increase the life of the compactor and allow it to function without interruption. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for your patience while the compactor was out of service."
