Visible Debris


Debris (from Wikipedia): 
débris (UK: /ˈdɛbriː/ or /ˈdeɪbriː/; US: /dɨˈbriː/) is rubble, wreckage, ruins, litter (Litter consists of waste products that have been disposed improperly, without consent, at an inappropriate location).  Litter can also be used as a verb. To litter means to throw (often man-made) objects onto the ground and leave them indefinitely or for others to dispose of as opposed to disposing of them properly.


 Non-Compliance enforcement pertaining to Visible Debris:
The Crowfield Plantation Covenants and Restrictions are defined by setting community standards requiring homeowners maintain a neat and orderly appearance on their properties from street view at all times including porches, patios, driveways, and curbside.  Additional “street view” locations include Crowfield Plantation common grounds and golf course areas.  

Material(s) will be categorized four ways for Debris Visible Violations:

Yard, Household, Equipment, and Recreational Equipment violations will be assessed within each category, i.e. a yard debris violation(s) will not include items that are household, equipment or recreational debris.        

            Yard Debris:
Leaf bags, brush, un-stacked logs/firewood, bags of or dumping of bulk mulch/topsoil, stacks or piles of masonry bricks/pavers (including for use on basketball hoops), fencing, pallets, and similar waste

            Household Debris:  
General unbundled trash and/or trash bags, coolers, pails/buckets, tarps/blankets, mattresses, demolished material from  remodeling, construction material, boxes or stacks of boxes, furniture, electronics (TVs, computers, etc.), unapproved trash receptacles, tires/auto  parts, mats left on driveways, and similar material.

            Equipment Debris: 
Ladders, lawn mowers, barbeques and like equipment, wheel barrows, saw horses, tools, implements, table saws, power equipment, and other similar household items left in view, whether openly stored or left inoperable for periods of time.

            Recreational Equipment Debris: 
This may include toys, bicycles, wagons, carts, basketball hoops and the like that are intended for temporary use when in street view.  It is customary to store or put away equipment when not in use on a daily basis.  Violations for equipment that is in street view will be cited between 2:00 AM and 5:00 AM.  If such equipment is in a state of disrepair and/or left in the same position for over a week, a violation may also be cited at that time.

Curbside disposal of debris is allowed only the day before and day of trash pickup.
  Should debris not be accepted by the collection service on pickup day, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to remove those items from curbside and store debris out of site, as well as comply with municipal standards required for all trash pickup.
