Pets
Pet owners are reminded that they should walk their pets AWAY from neighbors’ homes, playground areas and high traffic areas. Deposits of “poop” around the common areas and on neighbor’s property has become a significant nuisance. PETS SHOULD BE ON A LEASH WHEN ON KINGSVIEW RIDGE PROPERTY. IT’S NOT ONLY AN ASSOCIATION RULE, BUT COUNTY LAW! The Association covenants say that pets should not be a source of annoyance or nuisance to the neighborhood or other members. Pet owners should always “pick-up” after their pet.

Let’s face it, this is not only the law, but a sign of a considerate pet owner/neighbor. Please be aware that, failure to follow the proper rules concerning your pet could result in a monetary fine being imposed or action being taken to remove the pet from the community! See more info here.

Recycling, Trash & Bulk Pickup
Please be aware that the recycling and trash pickup are actually not the same company. Recycling is run by the county and trash by Potomac Disposal. See more information about each below.

Recycling
You can look up our county recycling collection day and services by going here
Recycling Link.

Montgomery County residents may recycle their Christmas trees from December 26th through the first Friday of February by placing the entire tree at the curb by 7am on their regular recycling collection day. Please make sure to remove all decorations and tinsel and do NOT place tree inside a plastic bag.

Snow Plowing
Please be advised that snow plow services are rendered by the COUNTY FOR ALL SINGLE FAMILY HOME streets. The only streets plowed by our Homeowners Association’s snow plowing contractor are those in the townhouse/condominium communities.
