Garage and Yard Sales
  • chevron_rightGarage Sales: Are there restrictions?
    You may hold up to two garage/yard sales each year. If you hold a sale as a part of the Windham Hill neighborhood publicized sales (Spring and Fall), these count towards your two allowed sales. Merchandise sold at garage and yard sales must be items that you have owned or be items from your home. The frequency and restrictions on items sold are governed by Overland Park code. You may view Overland Park's garage sale guidelines by clicking here.
     
    Thanks for observing these guidelines and helping to maintain the standards of our neighborhood.

  • chevron_rightWhen is the pool open? What do I need to get in?
    The pool is open daily from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend. To use the pool you must have a valid pool pass and a key for the pool gate (if you go to the pool before noon). Pool attendants staff the pool entrance from 12 noon until closing daily.  
     
    Pool keys are available for a $5 deposit from pool attendants provided that you submit or have submitted the Liability Release noted below. To obtain a pool pass, please:
    • read the pool rules and
    • complete sign a liability release form and include names of all children in your household and
    • provide a color, passport-sized photo for each resident 14 and over. Please write the name on each photo as we don't know who is who. The form and photos can be submitted to the pool attendants or mailed to: Windham Hill Pool Passes, 12903 Stearns Street, Overland Park, KS 66213 or can be submitted online. The pool passes will be available for pick up from the pool attendant a few days after submission. If you submit the form to the attendant, you will be allowed to use the pool provided that you prove your identity.
    • Children 14 years of age and older will be issued their own pool pass. Children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by a resident who is at least 16 years of age.
    • Residents are allowed to bring a reasonable number of guests, however the resident host must be present with the guest. If you leave, your guests must also leave. All guests are required to sign the Release of Liability book held by the pool attendant.
    • The pool use hours are 9 am to 10 pm.  Pool attendants staff the gate from 12 noon until closing. Pool passes are required.  If you desire to use the pool before 12 noon, please use your key, but please don't prop open the gate as we have had non-residents try to use the pool. For your own safety, please do not open the gate for anyone without a key. From mid-August we generally only have one shift of pool attendants due to school reopening. Attendants are generally scheduled from 4 or 5 pm until 9 or 10 pm. If you plan to use the pool during this time frame, please bring your key.

    Note that a replacement pool pass may be obtained for a $5 charge by submitting a new completed liability release form and new photographs.
Trash Collection
  • chevron_rightWhere can I Recycle Items
    Our trash hauler does not accept glass bottles for recycling. For items not collected, you can click here to locate a nearby facility for the items you would like to recycle. 
  • chevron_rightWhat should I know about trash/yard waste/recycling pick-up?
    The cost for trash, recycle and yard waste collection is included as a part of your annual homes association dues. Three separate trucks drive through the neighborhood on Wednesdays to provide the three separate services: Trash, Recycling and Yard Waste Removal. Wheeled carts are provided at no charge.
     
     

    Policies for Trash Recycle & Yard Waste Pickup
     
    General
    • Our trash contract covers collection of up to 96-gallons of household trash per week per home, unlimited recyclable materials and yard waste (9 bag limit but unlimited bags in the Fall, October through December) placed into paper bags.
