Should we keep these dumpsters?
Dear Meadow Pointe residents,
The excess dumping at the newspaper recycling dumpsters at Meadow Pointe 1 continues to be an issue and the CDD is now considering other options. Our CDD staff should not have to clean up after people who leave our parking lot like this! If it doesn’t fit in the recycling dumpster, take your recycling to other recycling drop-offs: the firehouse, Sand Pine Elementary, or Meadow Pointe 2! We have also had people leave old furniture and unwanted household items in the parking lot. Anything that does not fit in the Goodwill box should be taken to the Goodwill Store on 56. If these dumpsters are to stay, residents must be mindful of keeping this area clear.
There will be free youth basketball on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm-8pm starting January 12. All youths between the ages of 10 and 16 are welcome to attend. If you would like to have your children participate, or would like to volunteer to supervise this activity, please contact the clubhouse or Arlindo Dalomba at 727-6624.

Palm Tree Health
Some residents have recently lost their palm trees in Meadow Pointe due to Fusarium Wilt. This airborn disease spreads easily and one way to help prevent other trees from contracting it is to clean your pruning tools.
According to the University of Florida, “Once the palm is infected by this disease there is no cure. Currently, there is also no method for preventing this disease. Once the disease is established, it is thought that it may be transmitted from palm to palm by leaf-pruning equipment. Pruning should be restricted to removal of dead or dying fronds only. Severe pruning weakens the palms and may increase risk of pathogen transmission. Equipment used to remove leaves from an infected palm will have fungus infested leaf material (wood dust, plant sap) remaining on the blades. If equipment is not cleaned and disinfected, the palm pruned by this equipment will be exposed to fungus-infested leaf material. If in a landscape some palms are symptomatic, be sure to disinfect the pruning tool between each palm whether or not the palm shows symptoms of the disease. Some symptomless palms may have already been infected and are capable of spreading the disease if equipment used for pruning them is not properly sanitized." Read more about Fusarium Wilt here.
As of October 1st, Pasco County will no longer pick up recycling in bags. All recycling must be in properly labeled bin or can. Recycling stickers can be found at the CDD Office.
