Luma Staff Holiday Fund

Dear Residents,

The Holiday Season is well underway; the Board of Directors would like to provide residents with an opportunity to show your collective appreciation to our staff. Many of you show your appreciation throughout the year for the services our staff members provide but this is the opportunity for everyone to say “thank you” and to wish the staff a Happy Holiday Season.

Please know that your participation in the Holiday Fund is strictly voluntary and you may contribute any amount that you like. Donor names and contributions will be kept confidential.

Please note that the General Manager will not be a recipient of the Holiday Fund proceeds. All proceeds will be distributed to all Luma Staff members based on their length of employment. Alternatively, if you wish you are welcome to express your gratitude individually. If you would like a list of the staff members, you can pick one up at the front desk.

If you wish to make a donation to the Holiday Fund, please make your check payable to LUMA Homeowners Association and deliver it to the front desk in a sealed envelope or to the management office.

Happy Holidays! ~ Luma Board of Directors

Garbage Disposal Operation

Dear Residents,

The Proper Care and Use of a Garbage Disposal & Drains in General-
In Your Kitchen, Bathrooms and on the 4th Floor Terrace

Now, in case you don’t already know, here’s the proper way to use a disposal:
▪ Scrape clean your plate into the trashcan before rinsing any food residue (less than the size of a dime) into the disposal.
▪ Turn on the cold water – not hot. Cold water keeps the motor, bearings and shredder assembly from overheating.
▪ Turn on the garbage disposal.
▪ Feed the disposal a little at a time. Keep utensils and your hands out of the drain.
▪ Let the food clear the disposal – you can hear when it’s clear.
▪ Turn the disposal off.
▪ Let the water run 10 seconds more to flush the pipe.

▪ Turn the water off.

Not everything can be safely put in the garbage disposal. Here is a list of items you shouldn’t put in your disposal:
▪ Grease – Pour excess grease into an old metal can. After the grease has cooled and solidified throw the can and the grease into the trash.
▪ Bones – Any type of bone can jam a disposal, even chicken bones.
▪ Rice or pasta – No matter how much water you run or how long you run the disposal, you can never break rice or pasta down small enough. Both items swell when they are in contact with water, so the small pieces will eventually gather in the trap and swell until it’s closed.
▪ Hard shells from shrimp, crabs and other shellfish
▪ Unpopped popcorn kernels
▪ Banana peels
▪ Celery
▪ Potato peelings
▪ Corn husk or corn cobs
▪ Artichokes
▪ Coffee grounds (in quantity) or coffee filters
▪ Fruit pits and hard seeds from things like avocados or peaches
▪ Onion skins
▪ Egg shells – they turn into a sand-like substance that clogs pipes
▪ Trash, including twist ties, steel wool, pull tabs, rubber bands, glass, screws, nails, utensils, cigarette butts or bottle caps, paper, plastic, or other trash, fabric, string, rags, or sponges, plant or flower clippings,children’s toys, hair
▪ Harsh chemicals like bleach or drain cleaners. They can damage blades and pipes. Borax is a natural sink cleaner and sanitizer that effectively works on odor-causing mold and mildew that accumulates in garbage disposals. (See more below).

Elevator Repair Update from Otis

As soon as Otis receives the part, elevator #3 will be repaired.  Per code, the repair needed for the elevator, the governor rope installation, will have to be inspected by the City.   Otis is requesting the inspection however the date is a couple of weeks out.    It looks like it will be early December before the elevator repair will be complete and inspected by the City.  We will provide updates as information becomes available.

Currently elevator #3 is being used for MOVES ONLY and ONLY STAFF may be inside (no residents, pets…)

Thank you

This service will be conducted by our Maintenance Team between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:30 pm. During this time frame, the trash chutes will be inaccessible to residents.

If you must dispose of trash during this time you can leave it by the chute and the team will collect it once the cleaning is complete.
