Trash – Bulk Pick Ups: A message from Patriot Disposal: As we continue to navigate through this unique situation, I wanted to send you a note and let you know about a recent change to our service offering while we attempt to manage through the pandemic. Effective immediately we will discontinue ALL BULK PICK UPS until further notice. This change is necessary for many reasons and throughout the process we did not want to loose site of the safety and well being of our employees and individuals in your communities. The deciding factors for these changes are as follows:

  • Excessive amount of bulk requests during a time when many individuals are at home.
  • Additional exposure to the coronavirus to our staff handling this material.
  • The increased demand for available staff to handle all of the requests.
  • Minimizing social distancing at a time when most businesses have closed or reduced their service offering.

While this is a change to the normal service we provide, this is just a safety measure we feel necessary at the current time. We will contact you as soon as we decide to change back to our normal service offering for BULK services. In advance, we thank you for your patience and understanding. Additionally we as you to share this change with your community immediately.

Operations: At this time, there has been no major impact on Broadlands’ contractor force. We will continue to communicate with our contractors regarding any potential changes to trash and recycling collection or the grounds maintenance schedule if necessary. Updates will be provided as soon as possible.

Going Forward: Conditions, concerns, and actions related to COVID-19 are changing daily. Broadlands will continue to monitor and update our actions accordingly. The Association will provide further updates on our website, website forums, email blasts, and push notifications as appropriate. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. All other questions or concerns can be directed to info@broadlandshoa.com or 703-729-9704.
