The Association’s provider is Bestway Disposal who provides a 96 gallon toter for trash and a 64 gallon recycling toter. Basic trash service is included in basic association dues. Recycling service can be added for a small additional fee. To add recycling service, notify the Association Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Service Day is Monday Morning.
The following are the guidelines for trash:
1. Trash and recycling containers are to be kept in garages except when put out for pickup on trash day.
2. Place your trash out the morning of the trash pickup day. Hunters Point has bears and other animals, which will rummage through the trash.
3. Winds can be high in Hunters Point. Please ensure all refuse and recyclables are totally immersed in the toters and ensure lids are secured from blowing open. Bungee cords work well for this.

SNOW PLOW SERVICE
The Association provides snow plow service to the private drives and cul du sacs which do not normally receive City of Colorado Springs snow plow service. In addition, Association owned sidewalks next to the entrance sign, park, and ravine are cleared. The snow plow service is called out whenever there is a 4-6 inch snow fall. This is the same plowing policy that is used in the City of Colorado Springs for non-major roadways. For questions regarding snow plowing contact the Association Vice President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Association, in partnership with the Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSPD), normally has a wood chipper come through the neighborhood twice a year in May and July to remove neatly stacked tree limbs. The hours of wildfire mitigation effort are reported the head of the Wildfire Mitigation Committee who provides a report the CSPD. The hours reported are used to justify the use of the chipper as well as other joint HOA/CSFD projects to benefit the Association. For questions regarding wildfire mitigation activities contact the committee chair at email@example.com.
The association provides email blasts to all members who have subscribed to the service. The blasts consist of wildlife warnings (bear, mountain lion, etc) in the neighborhood, fire risks, association events, etc. To sign up for email blasts, please fill out the following form and mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Association normally has three community events each year.
Spring Clean Up. The cleanup is held on a Saturday in early May of each year. Association members gather in the Park at 9am for coffee, juice and donuts. Teams are formed to do basic cleanup of association property and roads. At noon, the group gathers again at the Park for pizza and fellowship. Representatives from the CSPD and the CSFD often attend to provide a community update. Wildfire mitigation assessments of individual properties are often provided. This is a great opportunity to meet neighbors and support the Association.
Summer Party. The Hunters Point Summer Party is normally held in August of each year. Themes vary each year and normally over 120 owners and their families attend. Food, beverages, kids games and activities are provided.
Board Appreciation Dinner. Each year in February or March, the Hunters Point Board invites the volunteers who supported the Association in the past year to an Appreciation Dinner. It is a way of saying thank you to our neighbors who volunteered their time to make the association successful.
