City ending recycling pickups at CVE condos
City says too much trash was tossed in recycling bins
The City of Deerfield Beach will soon end collection of recycling at all CVE condos.
The change, which takes effect October 1, is due to the Village’s inability to stop dumping non-recyclable items in the recycling bins.
Over the past year, the city has regularly inspected the amount of contamination in the Village’s recycling bins. The amount of trash thrown in with recyclables was routinely over 20% of the total items. This amount of contamination prevents the city from separating and disposing of recyclable items.
Over the past year, Master Management has communicated to residents the importance of proper recycling. From video messages and emails to in-person pleas, Master Management warned residents the city would end collections if contamination rates did not improve.
Beginning October 1, blue recycling dumpsters at the condos will be slowly replaced with green trash dumpsters. Everything thrown in any condo dumpster or bin will be collected as trash.
There may be one or two locations inside the village where residents will be able to drive and drop recycling. Those locations will be announced when finalized.
Master Management adds new walking paths to pavement plan
As repaving around the condos continues, Master Management is making some improvements to the list of planned projects.
In addition to the previous multi-year plan to repave roads and lots in front of the buildings, new walking paths have now been added to the to-do list.
The revised paving plan has been posted on the Master Management website, www.KeepingCVEbeautiful.com.
Meanwhile, this year’s paving is almost completed. Crews are on schedule and the project is expected to be completed by the first week in October.

Message from the Executive Director
The U.S. Census may be coming to your door.
I want to begin by wishing everyone a Happy Labor Day.
Labor Day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. With all the capital improvement projects underway in our Village, I absolutely appreciate the contributions of workers!
Speaking of workers, I want to alert you to the possibility of crossing paths with United States Census workers over the next several weeks. As part of the U.S. Census effort, volunteers are paying personal visits to residents who have not yet filled out the U.S. Census.
If someone visits your home to collect information, check to make sure they have a valid ID badge with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date. Census workers may also carry Census Bureau bags and other equipment with the Census Bureau logo.
If you have any concerns or suspect someone is not legitimate, please do not open your door and call security at 954-421-3552.
Please remember, if you need to visit the Master Management office, please wear a mask. Better yet, give us a call. I am sure almost everything you need can be taken care of over the phone. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
