President's Message

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying your summer so far. We have had some very nice weather to enjoy the pool and other activities throughout the community. We had a lot of fun at the annual 4th of July party at the pool. We had a few clouds in the morning but the sun came out and it was a great day. Please see the pictures of the event in the paper edition of the Roster. Our next event will be Family Fun Night held in August.

ALERT!  We have had an increasing problem over the past few months with people putting large bulk items out on common ground. The trash company will not pick these items up during our regular Monday trash pickup. ALL TRASH AND BULK ITEMS MUST BE PLACED IN THE FRONT OF YOUR HOME FOR PICKUP. We have had to make calls to the trash hauler to make special arrangements for them to return and remove these items, the trash company has asked that we notify the community that your trash items need to be placed in the fronts of your homes. Please honor this request. See additional trash information in the Facility Manager’s message.

Thank you and have a safe and happy summer!

This month I would like to address the questions I have received regarding trash disposal. The Townships contract this year is with Mascaro & Son’s. If you have a complaint about Mascaro’s pickup you can go to the Township Administration Office located on Ship road and fill out a complaint form. This is important because the Township reviews these complaints with Mascaro during contract renewals.

The current contract allows us to put out one bulk item each trash day. Please place the bulk item where you normally place your trash inside the court. Bulk items do not include construction material.  DO NOT DISCARD BULK ITEMS ON THE COMMON GROUNDS.

If you are remodeling and using a contractor make sure the contractor will dispose of all construction materials as part of the job. If you are doing the project yourself you need to arrange for a dumpster. Construction materials are wood, Doors, Kitchen cabinets, Bathroom tiles & fixtures, etc.

Mascaro will also not pickup Electronics. To dispose of your electronics for free go online to www.chestercountyswa.org, Hover your mouse over Recycling, select Residential Recycling from the drop down menu then click on Hazardous waste disposal. This will bring up all the locations, times and materials which you can drop off for free in Chester County.

Additional yard waste drop off will be available to Uwchlan residents at the Uwchlan Township Building from 9am – 12 noon on July 19th,  August 16th and September 20th.

Regarding animal control: 
Not often, but from time to time I will receive a call about rats. When I get these calls I go out and look for boroughs around gardens, walkways and sheds. If I see a trail of boroughs I will alert the home owner or owners to call an exterminator to treat them. When you contract with an exterminator ask if they will dispose of the dead animals. You are not supposed to put dead animals in the trash. They should be buried or you can call Mark Thurston 610-363-3639 or 610-608-1961 to come and dispose of the animals. Mark charges a fee for this service.
The next Roster will be out in September.

Office Manager’s Message 

Summer has arrived. Our children are out of school and are playing everywhere. Please slow down. By taking a little extra care, everyone will be able to enjoy a safe and fun filled summer vacation.

Included in this issue are pictures from the July 4th Celebration. Despite the initial overcast and chilly conditions, a good time was had by all that attended. I would like to thank those that helped during the event and everyone that brought desserts.

Family Fun Night is scheduled for Saturday, August 9th, from 7 pm to 10 pm. Keep your fingers crossed that the weather will cooperate.

Pembroke Court still needs a Block Captain. Our volunteers are given a season guest pass to the pool and an invitation to the Appreciation Luncheon. Please call the office if you have any questions or wish to volunteer.

This roster issue combines the July and August information. Please mark your calendars. Our next Quarterly Homeowners Meeting will be September 9th at 7 pm in the farmhouse.  

Have a great summer.
