    The Dirty Truth about Recycling

    For years, China was home base for most of the world's recycling, importing two thirds of global plastic waste. Unfortunately, along with the garbage came plenty of environmental costs for China itself. So, starting in 2017 China effectively stopped taking shipments of waste for recycling.

    Now, most of our recycling is done locally. Jacksonville recycling centers deal with constant streams of waste and need to separate out material that can be recycled from material that can’t. While there is technology to help this process, if a load of recyclables is “contaminated” with non-recyclables it is more economical to send entire loads to landfills. It is estimated that over 30% of materials sent for recycling end up in landfills instead.  

    To avoid this, it is important to know the recycling rules for Jacksonville. They are not as straightforward as you may think.  

    DO NOT RECYCLE

    1. plastic bags or wrappers.  Don’t even bag your recyclables. Bring all your plastic bags to the supermarket to be recycled separately

    2. food

    3. soiled paper

    4. pizza boxes with grease

    5. yard waste

    6. construction waste

    7. metal scrap

    8. rubber

    9. styrofoam

    10. batteries

    11. diapers

    12. coffee cups

    13. most take out containers

    14. plastic clam shells that we usually buy in the supermarket


    RECYCLE

    1. flattened clean cardboard

    2. rinsed Metal Cans

    3. clean paper

    4. clean newspaper, magazines and catalogs

    5. paperback books and phone books

    6. fiberboard boxes like cracker, cookie and cereal boxes

    7. rinsed Plastic Bottles and Jugs (only plastics labeled 1-3, or 5-7)

    8. rinsed Glass Jars

    9. rinsed juice, soup, broth boxes and milk containers

    The Jacksonville Exchange Club will once again offer Deercreek residents the opportunity to participate in our 2019 Flag Project. Participating residents can choose to have the Exchange Club place a US Flag in their yards on the Memorial Day, Independence Day, and/or Veterans Day holidays.

  • Road Paving Project Implementation

    November 2018


    The Ad Hoc Road Paving Committee (RPC) has concluded its work for the selection of contractors and has now begun the Project Management phase. In addition to establishing staging and scheduling time frames, the movement of traffic within our community is being given serious thought and consideration, especially during the Gate House paver installation phase.

    The RPC has indicated the entire project is to be completed in three phases - the first phase will be the ribbon curbing and curb modification, the second phase will consist of milling and paving and the third phase will include the Gate House paver installation. Phase 1 is expected to begin in late November and take two weeks, Phase 2 should start in December and be completed prior to the holidays. Phase 3 will start in January 2019 after the holidays and the number of guest and vendor visits decline.

    Traffic will definitely be impacted during all three phases; during the first two phases, one-half of the road will remain open for residents to traverse, albeit very slowly, while the other repaved half is drying. Because asphalt is very fast drying, residents should be able to drive on the repaved road later the same day.

    It is likely Deercreek Club Road and Vineyard Lake Road will be temporarily switched to one-way only during Phase 1 and 2, thus residents will need to allow extra time to get in and out of the community.

    During all phases, at various times, the McLaurin gate, which is the access to the west of the Club House and is always locked, will be open. Minimally, all large vehicles involved in the project will be required to enter and exit the community through this gate. The Board has approved the temporary hiring of a third Security Officer to assist our other two officers during the implementation phase and to ensure both Gates are properly manned. The third roving Security Officer will be enforcing the lowered speed limits and monitor proper traffic flow. Phase 3, the Gate House paver installation, will require a different and more significant traffic flow pattern which will include using the McLaurin gate as the neighborhood’s primary exit. Phase 3, detailed information will be provided in late December/early January.

    Residents will be kept well informed via email and, to a lesser extent the electronic sign board, of changes to traffic patterns before and during all phases. Specific dates and detailed traffic flow instructions will be provided and all residents should understand and abide by these notices, including lowered speed limits. For your family and neighbors safety, it is very important that ALL residents be signed up to receive every HOA email.  Please go to our website at www.deercreekcc.com and sign up today or send an email to dccoacommunications@gmail.com and ask to be added to the HOA email database.

    Look for more detailed information about this project and please share with neighbors and friends during the entire process so everyone stays safe and the project is not impeded by misinformed drivers.

    The Board, again, thanks Danny Becton and all the members of the Road Paving committee for their valuable time and effort on this project; they have volunteered countless personal hours to keep Deercreek one of the premier communities in our area.

  • Past Due Financial Rule Change

    Effective November 26, 2018

    At the October 26, 2018 Board of Directors meeting the Board approved a minor change to the Past-Due Financial Accounts rule by eliminating a notice period in the actual bar code suspension letter for the Member to bring the account current before the bar code is suspended.  It is customary for Members, whose accounts are delinquent, to receive a delinquent notice/statement at the 60 and 90 day mark that includes language regarding bar code suspension.  A Bar Code Suspension Notice is sent to a Member whose bar codes have been suspended by the Board immediately following the Board meeting.

    This change goes into effect as of November 26, 2018; the Rules and Regulations will be updated on the website.  

    Below is both the current rule language and the changed rule language:

    EXISTING RULE LANGUAGE
    Past-Due Financial Accounts:
    Quarterly Operating Assessments are due on the first day of the first month of the current calendar quarter. An Operating Assessment payment is past due if not received by the Community Association Manager prior to the last day of the first month of the current calendar quarter (Example: A Late Fee, plus Interest charge, will be assessed a Member’s account in the event the 1st Calendar Quarter payment, which is due January 1, is not received by January 31).

    Member accounts that are 30 days past due in Operating Assessment payments shall accrue interest at 18% per annum from the due date of an unpaid Operating Assessment until the Member’s Operating Assessment account balance is fully paid.

    A $25 Late Fee, plus annual interest accruing at the rate referenced below, shall be assessed on past due payments of an Operating Assessments that are paid late.

    The DCCOA will begin lien and foreclosure procedures on a Member’s property when (i) the Member is past due in the payment of two (2) or more Quarterly Operating Assessments; or, (ii) the Member has an account balance in excess of $1,000 that is more than ninety (90) days in payment arrears. All costs and expenses incurred by the DCCOA in the collection of outstanding payments due the Association, including legal and court costs, shall be added to the Member’s account and be paid by Member.

    All gate access barcodes(s) of a Member, and/or property renter, shall be deactivated upon a Member’s account balance being more than ninety (90) days past due. Prior to a gate access barcode being suspended, the Member shall receive a notice from the Community Association Manager advising the Member that his/her account balance is more than ninety (90) days past due and the balance is to be paid in full by the date referenced in the written notice to maintain gate access barcode privileges.  Following deactivation, the gate access barcodes shall only be reactivated upon the Member’s account balance being paid in full.
