A Bit of This and That!

A Bit of This and That!

February 7, 2020

A bit of this and that this week.


Several topics to cover this week. First, changes are here for how we are to recycle. Our local recycler is no longer recycling milk cartons or other drink cartons. Also, frozen food boxes or containers are no longer recycled. I think this means any paper that has been coated is no longer on the Lewis County recycling list.

This means regular recycling is limited to paper (mail, magazines, catalogs, phone books and newspapers), plastic containers (clean bottles, jugs, tubs and bucket) and aluminum or tin cans (clean). We continue to have separate large recycling bins for cardboard. Glass recycling has to be taken to the Lewis County Transfer Station at Floral, just off Gold street.


Neighbors will soon be seeing new garden bark in areas of the neighborhood. One-third of the neighborhood gets new bark every year and this year it is everything south of Colonial Drive. This is a big job every year so a big thank you to all the yard crew from all of us neighbors!


This is another one of those scheduled things here in Stillwaters. Apartments get their windows washed on the outside once a year (June) and houses get done twice a year. If you want to know and are not sure what month your house gets done, please call the office.


There are three community gardens in the neighborhood and it is that time of year for gardeners to be reserving their spots and letting the office know if they want the garden rototilled. These garden plots bring a lot of pleasure and food to fellow gardeners. If you are new to the neighborhood or just want to do a little vegetable gardening this might be something you want to sign up for. No charge for use of the garden spots and you just need to bring a hose and hoe. Getting to know your neighbors a little better is a bonus!
