There will be no trash pickup on Thanksgiving (Thursday, November 26th). Per Republic’s holiday schedule, they state that they will be picking up the trash the following day on Friday, November 27th.
Please remember to be courteous to your neighbors and follow the Bentana Woods West Parking Policy. As a reminder, the policy extends to your visitors and contractors. When having visitors or contractors at your house, please remind them to either park in your parking spots, a visitor spot, or along North Shore Drive.
Greetings, Neighbors! Although it will be different this year, Bentana Woods West would like to offer a safe way for our neighborhood to enjoy Halloween with a night of costumes and trick-or-treating on Saturday, October 31, starting at 5:30 pm!
If your household would like to participate, please leave your front lights on. We recommend you leave your treats outside, spread on a blanket or table (not in a bowl) near the sidewalk in front of your home. This will help to prevent groups clustering around doorways.
Whether you’ll be handing out candy or trick-or-treating, please read the recommendations below.
Trick-or-treaters, definitely DO:
Trick-or-treat with an adult who can help reinforce safety precautions
Wear a costume!
Wear a mask (designed to prevent the spread of germs, not just a costume mask)!
Walk safely in the neighborhood by carrying flashlights and staying on sidewalks
Touch only the treats you are taking
Bring along hand sanitizer
Wash your hands when you return home
Leave out bowls of candy (where lots of small hands will reach in)
Thank you for making a few small changes this year to keep one another safe and healthy! We’re excited to see all of your great costumes and creative treat-dispensing! As we do every year, we also remind everyone to please drive slowly and carefully on Halloween, as there will be families out trick-or-treating.
