Two friendly reminders

Two topics have been brought to our attention recently by a few different neighbors.

After mowing your lawn, please try to sweep or blow the grass clippings off of the streets and sidewalks. We need to keep our storm drains free from grass clippings, leaves and other debris.

Please be responsible and clean up after your dog.

Thanks!

Trash collection changes coming this spring

Beginning in the Spring of 2010, Indianapolis is improving trash collection service for 120,000 households in Marion County.This will affect all DPW service districts, but not those currently serviced by Waste Management or Republic. For some households, the improvements will mean replacing your current trash containers with the 96-gallon trash carts provided free of charge by the City of Indianapolis. For others, the new service will simply mean switching to a different trash collection day. And for some, it means both new trash carts and new collection days.

Below is a summary of how Indy’s trash collection services will change for Sycamore Run:

Your trash is currently picked up on:
WEDNESDAY

Beginning the week of June 7th, 2010 your new trash pickup day will be:
WEDNESDAY (no change)

If you are not already receiving cart service, you will be receiving a 96 gallon cart free of charge from the city, which will arrive between April 22nd and June 4th, 2010.

Your heavy trash pick up day will be:
FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH

Your new trash pickup day will become effective the week of June 7th. Please call (317)327-4MAC if you have additional questions or check out the Frequently Asked Questions on the Indy Gov website.

Please note, if you subscribe to the recycling program, there will be no changes to your service or day of pickup for recycled items. Additionally, if you live in an area serviced by a dumpster, there will be no changes to your service.

Neighborhood Crime

Within the past two weeks, Sycamore Run has had several thefts that all residents need to be aware of. Three cars have been broken into and one car was actually stolen out of a resident’s driveway. In addition, there have also been a handful of homes and cars vandalized this spring.

Most crimes are based purely on opportunity, so please do your part to discourage crime in the neighborhood.

  1. Park your cars in the garage when possible.
  2. Always lock your doors and never leave valuables out in the open.
  3. Make sure your garage coach light bulbs are working. CFLs (compact fluorescents) are particularly convenient!
  4. Beware of any suspicious activity and don’t hesitate to contact the police. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!
