Waste Management to Stop Service June 24
Posted on May 18th, 2020
Waste Management (WM), the current trash collection provider to Loch Alpine and adjacent subdivisions, has advised the Board that it will stop providing all service to Loch Alpine after the June 24 collection day. This is due to the pending Scio Township ordinance limiting trash haulers operating in the township. The notification to LAIA from WM last week included the following:
With the upcoming single hauler services ordinance in Scio Township unfortunately, we will not be able to continue offering services after June 30,2020… All Loch Alpine accounts will be closed effective June 30, and the last service day will be Wednesday, June 24. All existing Waste Management carts will be removed after the final service. Please advise residents to leave the WM carts at the curb until removal. All recycle 18 gallon bins will not be removed, the residents can keep them for storage or dispose of them. (Click here to read the full notice.)
LAIA determined years ago that allowing only one trash service operating on one weekday was beneficial for traffic safety, limiting wear of our streets, noise and visual ambiance. Scio has decided the same, proposing one provider, GFL Environmental, for all residential trash service in the township. Loch Alpine would be required to subscribe to GFL. Therefore, the LAIA Board is moving quickly with a GFL representative to have individual accounts set-up for all Loch Alpine residents to facilitate seamless waste and recycling service upon WM's termination with minimal gap time. We are committed to maintaining the benefits of only one service provider operating on our streets, so Loch Alpine households in Webster Township also will be required to subscribe to GFL.

Details on the township ordinance and proposed agreement with GFL, including negotiated residential rates, will be sent to you as available. We are very disappointed that Waste Management will not extend its service contract until the Scio-GFL agreement is final. Quarterly charges will be higher during the interim. In the meantime, GFL has been provided with resident names, addresses and contact information and plans to contact each owner by phone. The Board will continue to work closely with GFL to get the best rate available.

The Loch Alpine Award
LOCH ALPINE IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION LOCH ALPINE AWARD
 
The Loch Alpine Award was established by the Loch Alpine Improvement Association to recognize a person or persons who have demonstrated Exemplary efforts, Commitment and Dedication to the Loch Alpine Community.
 
In 2020, two members of the community were recognized:
  • Sue Inderhees and her family have lived in Loch Alpine since 1997. As a Mom's Play Group member, she became active in neighborhood social affairs, managing the Christmas season luminaries as an annual fundraiser for the playground initiative. For the past 15 years, Sue has been the coordinator/manager of the annual Loch Alpine Neighborhood Yard Sale. With her help, the advertising and finances are placed, the Members informed, and Boy Scout Troop 477 connected to collect the unsold left-overs for their benefit rummage sale. Thank you, Sue, for your wonderful service and for keeping our homes and garages neater, cleaner and better organized.
  • Linda is a long-time resident who raised a family here.  She served on the Board of Directors several years ago, and was elected last year for another term on the Board.  Her knowledge of law and litigation has been invaluable to the Board during the lawsuit over the country club property.  Someone who can engage with our attorneys and interpret pleadings and briefs! In addition, Linda joined the Grounds and Communications committees, making contributions such as editing and refining the Loch Alpine welcome packet for new homeowners. Thanks to Linda as she transitions to a life in Oregon to be near her family there.
The Loch Alpine Improvement Association is proud to have honored recipients of the Loch Alpine Award since 2001 (prior to 2013, the award was designated the Sendra Award). 
 
The previous recipients can be found here.
