Dumpsters and wood chipper will be provided by the Pinebrook Master Association and Pinebrook Homeowners Association again this year from Saturday, May 25th to Sunday, June 2nd. They will be in the usual location in the parking lot of the Pinebrook Park. In the past few years, use of the dumpsters has increasingly been abused by non-residents, landscape companies, after-hour dumping in the parking lot (not in the dumpsters), and dumping of toxic and hazardous materials. Crews may implement additional screening and security measures this year to help control and manage the cleanup efforts. Continued abuse could ultimately lead to discontinuation of this highly valued service. Please:
1.) Do not invite your friends in neighboring communities to use Pinebrook’s dumpsters.
2.) All disposed materials must be placed in the dumpsters and wood stacked in marked locations for chipping. Do not dump truckloads of debris in the parking lot for the crews to pick up and dispose of in the dumpsters.
3.) If you hire a landscape company to help with spring cleanup, please make sure they are only disposing of your materials, not all their other customers’ materials.
4.) Do not dump anything toxic or hazardous! NO paint, paint rags, tires, propane tanks, chemicals, needles and medical waste, batteries, etc. Save those for Summit County’s Hazard Material Collection events instead.
5.) If you are unable to haul your trees or branches to the park to be chipped, you will need to contact a private chipping service or the Park City Fire District to sign up for their free mobile chipping service. Their schedule will fill quickly, so don’t delay. THE PHOA DOES NOT PROVIDE MOBILE CHIPPING SERVICES.
FREE Summit County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Saturday, April 27, at the Canyons Cabriolet parking lot.
One of our primary goals is to keep toxic chemicals and heavy metals out of our environment. When toxic materials like mercury, lead, and pesticides end up in the landfill they leach into the ground and into your drinking water.
9 AM – 1 PM for Summit County Residents only. NO businesses.
WHAT WE’RE ACCEPTING:
- Paints, varnishes, solvents
- Motor oil, antifreeze
- All types of batteries
- Household cleaners
- Fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides
- Pool and spa chemicals
- Propane and white gas fuel cylinders
- Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs)
- Electronic waste: computers, monitors, TVs, cell phones, laptops, cables (must be able to carry TVs using 1 person only)
- All mercury containing items
- Mattresses (for $10/item fee)
Special thanks to Recycle Utah, Park City Municipal, Summit County, Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation District and Sunrise Rotary for making this event possible!
Pinebrook Trail News and Updates
Alf Engen TH: The trail access to the Alf Engen Trail at the Pinebrook Park has been adjusted to keep trail users off the Gorgoza Mutual Water Company (GMWC) paved access road and work area. The trail access now begins immediately to the southwest of the main parking lot (a new sign has been installed) and the trail travels through the field and then crosses the GMWC paved access road to connect to the previous TH. Please do not walk on the GMWC paved access road (except to cross the access road, and then make sure to look for traffic) as heavy equipment is routinely operating in this area, and could be dangerous to pedestrians and pets.
Tall Oaks Circle TH: Trail access to the Ecker Hill Trail from the Tall Oaks Circle Cul-de-sac has been modified as of November 11, 2018. The trail access previously was up the driveway for 7475 Tall Oaks Circle, but we have constructed a new access trail that is located further west of the driveway. Please look for the trailhead sign, and stay on the trail, as it parallels the driveway. Please do not use the driveway in the future.
Creek Trail: The Creek Trail was temporarily closed this summer while a pipeline was installed below the surface. Many improvements were made to the trail and it is now open, but there are a few areas that still need work, so please use the trail with caution.
New Pinebrook Road TH to Creek Trail: A new connection to the Creek Trail was constructed this fall east of the driveway for 7670 Pinebrook Road. Please stay on the trail and do not walk down the driveway or on the homeowner’s property.
Just a reminder, using the private Pinebrook trail system to access the public hunting grounds in an area above Pinebrook is not allowed. Signage has been posted reminding hunters of this, but please report violations to the Summit County Sheriff. Thank you
