RecycleBank
Recycling isn't just smart; it's easy and important
for our children and environment. It reduces the
need for raw materials, which become scarcer
everyday.
Our trash hauler, Waste Connections, has added
RecycleBank to its list if services. RecycleBank is
a loyalty and rewards program that motivates
households to recycle. Every household that
participates will receive a large 95-gallon, wheeled
recycling cart equipped with an RFID (radio
frequency identification) tag. This RFID tag has a
unique number and will associate your cart to your
address. Simply place all of your recyclables (no
more sorting) in your new cart. The recycling truck
will weigh your recyclables and transmit this
information to your personal RecycleBank.com
Account, where you earn RecycleBank Points. For
every pound of recycling collected, 2.5
RecycleBank Points are credited. 450 points per
month maximum, or 5,400 points per year.
These RecycleBank Points are redeemable for
discounts at local and national businesses.
Currently, RecycleBank has more than 400 local
and national reward partners dedicated to its
mission to encourage communities and

his time and efforts to keep Woodbridge a

Neighborhood Clean-up Day

needed to help collect trash, debris and weeds in
the commons areas and along 21

neighborhood we live in. Additionally, the
association will rent a large roll-off container for

yard waste that needs disposed (no liquids, tires,
wet paints or other household hazardous waste
and other normally prohibited items). There will be
food and drinks provided for all participants.

example and your efforts are greatly appreciated.
Terrific job!!!!

Did You know.?
Section 6.08 No Storage; Trash states, in part,
that trash containers “shall be stored in such as
manner so that they cannot be seen from
adjacent and surrounding property.” Please be
courteous to your neighbors and store your trash
containers out of sight and make sure you return
your container to storage on the same day it is
picked up.
Section 6.04 Structures; Division of Lots; Utilities;
Trailers; and Fences states, in part, “No fence
shall be erected on any Lot, except those
specifically approved as to location, size, type
and material by the Board of Directors.”
8ummer Reminders
Summertime brings out the fishermen and
families to the Woodbridge pond area. Please
help keep the area clean by simply policing the
area for trash or belongings prior to your
departure.

Also, it’s tempting for our children to throw rocks
into the pond. Again, the rip rap (rocks) lining the
edge of the pond is there for erosion control
purposes. For those of you who paid previous
special assessments to add this protection, you
know it is very expensive rock! Each rock thrown
into the pond is money we will all spend in the
future to keep the commons areas maintained.

Please remind your children that the rocks around
the pond are there for a reason and they need to
stay along the banks. If you observe anyone
throwing rocks into the pond or other acts of
vandalism to property in our community, please
report it to our Neighborhood Beat Officer, Lori
Kimrey, at the Patrol West Station at 337-9400.
National Night Out
Mark your calendar for the 2009 National Night
on Tuesday, August 4. Residents can show their
support in the fight against crime by displaying
front porch and driveway lights that evening.

Residential Security
Don’t make your house a target for burglars!!!!

The Wichita Police Department reminds us to do
the following to protect our homes and
valuables:

1. FRONT DOORS: Install good locks and
LOCK THEM!

2. PATIO DOORS: Sliding patio doors are
frequent points of entry. They should be
stabilized by a folding bar inside the door,
or with a stick wedged firmly in the lower
track behind the door. This will reinforce
the door’s standard lock.

3. WINDOWS: An easy target for the criminal.
Double hung windows should be pinned
and aluminum sliding windows should be
secured to reduce vertical clearance
between window and track. (Ask your local
hardware dealer or repairman for details.)

4. EXTERIOR: Shrubbery and trees should
not block the view of doorways and
windows. Obstructions allow intruders the
opportunity to hide in privacy to gain
entrance. Burglars do not like well-lit areas.
Maintain adequate lighting and replace
bulbs as needed. Use of electric timers
may be used to give the appearance
someone is at home while you are away.
You should also clearly display your house
number to permit emergency personnel to
locate your home quickly.
