Clothing/ E-Waste Pick-up
Global Disposal will be holding a Clothing/EWaste event scheduled for Tuesday, February 16, 2021. To sign-up please visit www.globaldisposal.com and click on the “event sign-up” tab. Find your HOA (Alicante) and event, and then fill out the sign-up form. Please bag all items and place them by the trash enclosure.
E-waste (electronic waste)
E-waste could include anything with a cord, such as computers, monitors, and TVs. This event EXCLUDES bulky items, light bulbs and batteries, hazardous waste, microwaves, and appliances. To schedule removal for a large appliance, call Global Disposal at 858-848-9278.
Avoid Sink Backups
The disposal may grind it, but Alicante’s pipes cannot handle grease, scraps, cornhusks, egg shells, peels (apples, carrots, etc.), oils/butters, excessive soap, coffee grounds, or rice. Moreover, since condos are stacked, a drain issue in one condo likely impacts those above/below. Please remember – and ask cleaning staff to remember – to avoid the items listed to help keep Alicante’s drains flowing.
Fitness Room Closure
As you may already be aware, the fitness room is currently closed and will remain closed until the County of San Diego allows fitness facilities to re-open.
Community Room Reservations
Management will not be taking any new community room reservations for the time being.
Face Coverings Policy
As of May 1st the County of San Diego has been requiring residents to wear face coverings in public settings. In regards to Alicante, we strongly recommend that all residents wear a face covering when traveling through the Association. Contractors and third party vendors working onsite are required to wear face coverings and gloves when traveling through the Association.

Food and Beverage Delivery Apps
If you are using a food and beverage delivery service (i.e. UberEats, PostMates, GrubHub etc.), you must meet the delivery person at the front entry lobby door and must not let the delivery person into the building. By limiting the amount of non-Alicante residents from entering the building, this will help reduce the spread of germs.

In addition, please do your utmost to protect yourself and your neighbors. Carry sanitizing wipes with you when entering and exiting locations. Wash your hands at every opportunity. Use hand sanitizer when you cannot wash your hands. We are all in this together.
The Governor’s order mandates people to practice “social distancing,” which is the idea of maintaining a roughly 6-foot distance between other people. It also means limiting nonessential travel, avoiding public transportation when possible, working from home, and skipping social gatherings.
Quarantine vs. Isolation
Isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease. To help give a clear definition as to what each one means, below are the definitions provided by the CDC website:
• Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
• Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
Items that are found by the Building Engineer and Janitorial Staff in the garage, lobby, and amenity rooms are turned in to Management. If you believe you have misplaced an item, please contact Management at firstname.lastname@example.org to check and see if it has been turned in.
In the event you change your email address or phone number, please remember to advise management. This allows us to continue to communicate important reminders to you!
All moves and deliveries must be scheduled with Management at least a week in advance. A general rule of thumb is if it takes more than one person to move it, then a move must be scheduled. The reason is simply to protect the building from sustaining damage during a move. Please be advised that if you are found to have had an unscheduled move, you will be subject to hearing and fine. If you are unsure of the scope of your move or would like to schedule a move, please contact the General Manager.
If you are thinking about making a change in your unit that would require architectural committee review and approval, please plan well in advance. Per the Architectural Guidelines, the Committee is allotted 30-45 days for review. It is also recommended to wait before setting a schedule with your contractor until an approval has been awarded.
