Common Questions – Helpful Answers

What are the annual HOA Dues and what do they cover?

The current annual dues for the Quaker Ridge HOA are $605. This fee covers several essential services in the neighborhood:

  • Trash & recycling pickup
  • Snow removal
  • Landscaping
  • Pond treatment
  • 106th St. & Hamilton Pass fence maintenance
  • Security Street Lights support
  • Street & Stop sign maintenance

In addition to these services and routine maintenance, the HOA board is also responsible for ensuring that an adequate reserve fund is in place to provide financial resources in the event of significant damage to common areas due to unforseen events such as severe weather and other natural disasters. Please see the Dues Section on the HOA Resources page for more information.

What day is trash and recycling pickup?

Trash pickup at Quaker Ridge is every Thursday and recycling pickup is every other Thursday.

*Note that during weeks with holidays trash pick up is typically one day later on Friday. Click here for the 2021 Republic Services Holiday Schedule.

Please be aware that trash pickup is typically completed early in the morning, however Covid-19 has resulted in more people at home, and thus more trash, and so pickup might be delayed as the trucks fill up faster and will need to dump more often.

What circumstances require submission of an Architectural Request Form?

The HOA has an Architectural Review Committee to help maintain the quality of our neighborhood.  Its function is to evaluate the plans for all exterior landscaping, repairs and remodeling (such as painting, decks, fences, trees, replacement roofs, etc.) in order to ensure compliance with all covenants, restrictions and guidelines.  The purpose of this review is to protect our scenic environment and maintain the value of our homes.  Please submit the Architectural Request Form and plans to the Architectural Control Committee for approval before any work begins.
