Recycling Tips

  1. Buy recycled paper and print on both sides. When using paper in the office, print on both sides of the sheet and recycle the paper when you are finished. By recycling one ton of paper, you can save 17 trees, almost 7,000 gallons of water and more than three cubic yards of landfill space.
  2. Recycle your outdated technology. According to EPA, Americans throw out two million tons of e-waste each year. Avoid adding to that waste by recycling your old technology. For more information on electronic recycling, visit this site.
  3. Make recycling bins readily available. Make sure your home and office are outfitted with recycling bins for paper, plastic and metal. Keep them out in the open and label them appropriately. Sometimes the convenience factor is all that is needed.
  4. Recycle your empty ink and toner cartridges. Almost eight cartridges are thrown out in the United States every second of every day. That's almost 700,000 cartridges per day.
  5. Buy remanufactured ink and toner cartridges. Each remanufactured cartridge keeps approximately 2.5 pounds of metal and plastic out of landfills and saves about a half gallon of oil.
  6. Recycle old newspapers laying around the office. When finished reading the newspaper, either leave it for someone else to read or recycle it.
  7. Look for the recycled option in all the products you buy. It's not just paper that is recycled.
  8. Buy rechargeable batteries. It takes 1,000 regular batteries to equal the lifespan of one rechargeable battery. When you are discarding your batteries, recycle them.
  9. Purchase rewritable CDs and DVDs so that you can reuse them from project to project.
  10. Reuse your morning coffee cup. Or better yet, buy a mug to avoid the waste caused by throwing away the paper or Styrofoam.

After School Snack Reminders

After a long day at school, kids may need a little “pick-me-up” snack to keep going.

Choosing a healthy snack will not only ensure that your child will be taking in the proper vitamins and nutrients, but can lead to choosing better diet options in the future.

Use this as an opportunity to incorporate fruit, vegetables and whole wheat into your child’s diet.

  • Fresh-cut Veggies and Ranch Dressing
  • Cottage Cheese and Peaches
  • Popcorn
  • Trail Mix
  • Ham and Cheese Wrap
  • Frozen bananas dipped in Yogurt
  • Frozen Grapes
  • Apples and Peanut Butter
  • Whole Wheat Crackers with Cheese
  • Fresh Fruit Smoothie
  • Granola or Cereal Bars
  • Hummus and Pita Chips

Energy Saving Tips

We all want to save a little extra money. To help reduce your electric bill, here are some small tips that can go a long way.

  • When going away for several days, bump your air conditioner up a few extra degrees so it does not have to work as hard to cool while you are gone.
  • Set your air conditioner a degree or two higher than you typically would, and use your ceiling fans to stay cool and keep air circulating. If you turn the unit down while you are home, only vary the setting by 2-3 degrees.
  • Using your dishwasher uses less water than washing by hand. Set your dishwasher to air dry to save more energy.
  • Add some color to your apartment and save on your electric bill by putting up curtains. Not only will your home have more personality, but it will stay cooler during the day, too.
  • Wash your laundry using cold water whenever possible, as hot water heating accounts for the majority of the electric usage for your washing machine.

Back to School Reminders

A new school year has started. With children going to and from the bus stop at the front of the community, we ask that everyone please be aware of your speed when driving through the community. The speed limit on Auston Crossing Dr. is 15 mph, and the recommend speed in the parking lots is 10 mph.

School buses are out in full force. Remember that pedestrians have the right-of-way, and always yield to school buses. For those who commute during the early morning and mid-afternoon times, try to allow yourselves some extra time in anticipation of bus traffic.

Gate Protocol

When you arrive at the gate and swipe your access card, please allow the arm to raise fully before you begin to advance.

The gate arm must lower completely before the next person swipes his/her access card in order to ensure that the timing on the gate arm allows residents to go through.

Piggy-backing, or following closely behind another vehicle, passing another vehicle while entering the front gate, and entering through the exit are strictly prohibited.

To prevent others from following you through the gate, we recommend entering as far to the right as possible, slowing to allow the gate arm to lower behind your vehicle before continuing home.

Violations to gate protocol will result in access to resident amenities being limited or revoked. Violators to gate protocol may receive a police citation, and non-residents may be charged with trespassing.

Guest Entry

When you have a guest come to the gate, please instruct them as to how to use the gate kiosk. They may scroll to your name and hit call, or enter your 3 digit ID, at which point the kiosk will call directly to whatever number you have provided.

You may talk to the person at the gate, verify their identity, and press “9” to open the gate remotely. If you do not know your 3 digit ID, please contact our Welcome Center, and we can provide it to you.

If your phone number has not been entered into the gate system, please make arrangements to meet your guests at the gate to allow them access.

If you witness anyone following others through the gate, or otherwise violating community policies, please inform us immediately, providing the time and a description of the vehicle. If you have any questions about the entry gate, please contact our Welcome Center.
