THE CARTS ARE COMING!
In late April, CR&R Environmental Services, the City of Lake Forest’s new waste and recycling service provider, will be replacing your current carts with brand new carts for your waste, recycling and green waste. CR&R will deliver each household a set of 95-gallon carts, or if you prefer smaller carts, you may order either a 65-gallon or 35-gallon set. To order one of these smaller sizes, instead of the standard 96-gallon carts or if you don’t have room for a green waste cart, fill out and return the container reservation card CR&R will be mailing soon, or call (949) 625.6735.

ATTENTION ALL BOAT OR KAYAK OWNERS!
Invasive Species Prevention Program: Before you purchase, sell and/or request to launch a new boat please be aware of the following concern. Invasive Quagga or Zebra Mussels are invading lakes and water ways throughout California. Both species can wreak havoc on the environment by disrupting the natural food chain and can contribute to the release of harmful bacteria that affect other aquatic species. The mussels can attach themselves to the hull, engine and steering components of a boat and cause damage.
Please be aware that Lake Forest Community Association requires a 30 day notice and inspection prior to launching a boat in our lakes. This will include an inspection by Mark Hartjes, Association Maintenance Supervisor which will include a visual inspection, questions regarding the boats origin and a request to have the boat cleaned per the Department of Fish & Game recommendations. If you sell or remove a boat including small craft, please contact the association to schedule an inspection prior to relocation or sale. The Staff may delay the launch or sale of a boat so we encourage you to contact us prior to a planned purchase or sale. Also, please do not move kayaks or small boats between lakes. Please refer to the Department of Fish & Game website for a guide on “How to clean, drain and dry a boat” prior to a request to launch at the Beach & Tennis Club.
