Official Rules for Trash House

The following are the official rules of the River Ridge POA Entrance House and Trash Facility. This document may be updated by the RR POA Board as needed. Last update: 2/15/2023.

The Entrance House Facility belongs to the River Ridge Property Owners Association (RRPOA) and is a valuable asset for the community. All association members are responsible for helping to maintain a safe, clean and locked facility for association members only. Non-RRPOA members, including contractors, are prohibited from using the facility for trash disposal.
