Trash Talk

Brittany Kojzarek from Property Specialists Inc discusses common issues associations face regarding trash management. Covering everything from clogged chutes to receptacles being brought back in the garage on time, don’t miss these stories on how you can “curb” these problems in your own association.

This episode features Brittany Kojzarek, COO of Property Specialists, Inc., with an in-depth discussion about the common and recurring issues in HOAs and Condo Associations face on trash day.

Proper trash management keeps an association looking orderly, but can also involve health and safety and pest control. When individuals aren’t following the rules of your association regarding their trash, it has an effect on everyone living there.

We talk about what the most common rules associations put in place to avoid these problems are, how those rules are most commonly broken, and how proper, consistent enforcement helps “curb” your trash woes.
