The Mixed Media Compactor at The Landings Recycling Center is full, and the vendor who handles hauling the materials is unavailable until late tomorrow (September 19) to empty the container. Please do not place anymore items in the Mixed Media Compactor until Wednesday (September 20).

The Landings Association’s Public Works Department appreciates your help and apologizes for the inconvenience.

Rory Jose
Marinas Director

Thanks for all your cooperation and patience while staff were cleaning up the marinas. Both marinas are now open for business.

Due to dangerous hazards on the fishing pier at Landings Harbor, the pier will remain closed until fixed.

If you store a boat on the north side of the basin and need to get to your boat, please call the marina office (912-598-1901).

Due to the cleanup required after Hurricane Irma hit our community on Monday, all Landings Association Public Works staff have been redirected to storm cleanup.

To date, all roads and community paths (including the Nature Trail) have been cleared from tree debris/obstructions. Staff have raked and swept all gatehouses and roads located in the Marshwood area of the community and are currently working in Plantation. By the end of next week, staff anticipate that all roads and community paths will be raked and swept.

Following is a summary of the debris removal rules at The Landings, as previously detailed this week. Please note that the Rule prohibiting set out more than 24 hours in advance of collection has been suspended.

Chatham County will begin removing yard debris the middle of next week in The Landings, though we do not know when bulk items removal will restart.

Yard Debris Removal

Your Landings Association staff represented The Landings in the Chatham County CEMA Command Policy Group meetings before, during, and after Hurricane Irma and have continued discussions with Chatham County officials on storm debris removal.

This afternoon, Chatham County provided the following notice to The Landings Association for distribution to all residents:

Some homeowners have reported that because Hurricane Irma was a mandatory evacuation, their home insurance policy covered “reasonable” expenses due to the storm.

If you are not sure if your home insurance policy provides such coverage, please check with your insurance agent regarding mandatory evacuation coverage.
