As a service to the residents and to obtain a group rate, the Board approved a contract with Four Seasons Exterminating for exterior spraying of the homes for nesting of bees and wasps. The rate, the same as last year, is dependent on having at least 50 participants and is guaranteed against the nesting of bees and wasps outside the homes through 11/1. If your home is being painted and you wish to participate, the spray will be delayed until after the painting is finished. If you are a Minnock tenant, they usually pay for the treatments.
If you wish to participate, please make your check payable to Sewickley Hts. Manor Homes and deliver to the Manor office.
Cost: Multi-townhouse - $42.00 Duplex townhouse - $85.00 Single-family home - $85.00
Deadline for payment is April 15, 2021

Trash and Recycling
Effective Monday, May 4, 2020, Waste Management instituted some temporary changes to their service:
All trash/refuse must be bagged & sealed (and wherever possible) placed in containers.
LOOSE ITEMS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.
All recyclable materials must be placed inside recycling bin (including cardboard).
ITEMS LEFT OUTSIDE OF BIN WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.
Bulk Collection – furniture, carpet, mattresses, appliances, etc. resumed on Monday, May 4, 2020.
Waste Management is no longer accepting glass for recycling. They advise residents to recycle glass at a regional location or to take glass to one of the glass recycling pop-up events scheduled around the county throughout the year. The Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) is a non-profit environmental group that sponsors glass
recycling events throughout the region. Please visit their site for more information:
Waste Management will now be enforcing the ban on plastic bags in recycling bins. Plastic bags have been on the do-not-recycle list for multiple years, but this year WM will be enforcing the ban.
Recyclables must be placed loose in a curbside bin and can not be placed in plastic bags.
When glass or plastic bags are in recycling bins, the bin will not be collected. For the first few months as residents adjust to the new regulations, WM will leave a notice in/on the bin explaining the list of materials accepted for recycling.
Please review the 2020 Waste Management Trash and Recycling Schedule for more information.
Memorial Tree Policy
The Board of Directors has developed and approved a memorial tree program for Sewickley Heights Manor. The program will allow residents to purchase a tree that will stand in memory or in honor of a loved one. These trees will also help to beautify our neighborhood with desirable trees, as many of our existing trees are becoming unsafe, diseased or simply past their prime. The cost of the tree and a memorial plaque, as well as watering, will be the responsibility of the homeowner,
and the Manor staff will position, plant and mulch a 2" radius around the trunk.
