Happy New Year! Tree Recycling and Smoke Detector Testing Information

KBC Management Residents,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!  We appreciate your tenancy and look forward to serving you in the coming year.  Following are several items to note as the year begins:

TREE REMOVAL & DISPOSAL REMINDERS
WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER TREE RECYCLING THRU OUR GARBAGE HAULER AND KINDLY REQUEST THAT YOU NOT LEAVE YOUR TREE NEAR THE GARBAGE CONTAINERS. 

We would appreciate your cooperation with Holiday Tree Safety and ask that you discard your live tree as soon as is becomes dry and NO LATER THAN JANUARY 8th.

TREE RECYCYLING OPTIONS
There are many Non-Profit Organizations which will accept your tree and wreath for a small fee.  This is a great way to support your community and safely dispose of these holiday decorations.

Visit oregonmetro.gov  and go to Garbage and Recycling/Metro’s Recycling Information to see how to prepare your tree.  Following are some locations for tree recycling we’ve found:

SMOKE DETECTOR TESTING
Start the year right. Please TEST ALL SMOKE & CO2 DETECTORS IN YOUR APARTMENT ON JANUARY 1ST (and monthly thru the year).

**To test the smoke detector, depress the test button.  If the detector does not sound a signal, contact your Manager immediately to receive a correct replacement battery.

The City of Portland requires that only 10 year lithium batteries be used in Smoke Detectors.  Please DO NOT replace bad batteries with 9v Alkaline batteries, as they are not to code.

HOLIDAY HOURS
KBC Management’s Office will be closed January 2nd for the New Year holiday. We wish everyone a safe and enjoyable New Years!
