Last month, when I was paying bills, I noticed with my homeowners association bill included a water conservation report. I looked at it and appreciated, in my little way with trying to be more green, that my community is doing something. They offered advice and tips on how to waste less water, as well. At the bottom, there was 2 email address, one for the board of directors at the homeowners association & another for the management of the HOA. I sent them both an email thanking them for their efforts and also inquired as to why we don't recycle. Within a day, I received an email back from both people. The management said its costly and hasn't been approved in the past. The director said that it hasn't been brought up for a while, but he would at the next board meeting again. Last night, I got an email from him, with a survey to take for the community people asking if we'd be willing to pay $5 more a month in our association fees for a recycling program. Am I willing? Absolutely! I'm also feeling kinda jazzed about the fact that I think my voice played a part in this possibly adoption of the recycling program! Yay Hayley!!! Its the little things that we do that can really add up, huh?!?
