WET GARBAGE (BIODEGRADABLE) 1. For waste that are WET (i.e. biodegradable), HOME COMPOSTING is encouraged.

2. To do home composting, you may either use COMPOST PITS or CLAY FLOWER POTS. The latter is advisable if you do not have any backyard space. Using Compost Pits a) Choose a patch of land which gets plenty of sunlight and ventilation. Dig two holes half a meter apart. Each hole should measure two cubic feet.

b) Place a small branch at the bottom of each, and a piece of PVC pipe (the size that you use for water lines) in the middle in vertical position. These ensure that your compost pit is aerated. c) Begin burying your wet or biodegradable waste (food and/or kitchen waste) in one of the holes at the end of the day. d) Cover every layer of waste you bury with a layer of soil. Don‟t stamp the soil but leave it loose. To make sure you are covering your pit properly, check for flies. No flies means no malodorous smell and therefore your waste is covered enough. e) Water your compost pit everyday just enough to moisten the surface. This speeds up decomposition. f) In case of rain, cover your pit with a sheet of plastic or galvanized iron so buried waste doesn‟t float up. g) Begin using the second hole as soon as the first one is filled. By the time you are done with it, you can dig out the contents of the first pit. The buried waste should have been converted to compost, to be used as fertilizer. Using Clay Flower Pots a) If you do not have any backyard space, use clay pots. Place a layer of soil in the bottom of your pot and start making a “garbage lasagna”: a layer of wet waste followed by a layer of soil until you fill up the pot, making sure the top surface ends with a layer of soil. b) Water the pot everyday with a bit of water just to moisten it. It will take around 15 days for waste in a pot to compost, so it is good to have several pots on hand. TIP: To hasten decomposition, shred or chop your compostable waste into smaller pieces before composting. Separate bones from chicken, pork, beef and fish, seafood shells and fruit seeds since these take longer to decompose. Compost them separately in another pit or container. You can also sprinkle lime over the waste during the composting process to ensure the eradication of any smell. 3. If, however, home composting is a problem due to space constraint, lack of manpower (no household helpers), or for whatever legitimate reason, call our Administration Office and ask to be referred to your Waste Management Committee representative.

C.

DRY GARBAGE (NON-BIODEGRADABLE) 1. For waste that are DRY (i.e., non-biodegradable), classify them into RECYCLABLES (refer to Annex D) and RESIDUAL or “LATAK” (Refer to Annex C) and follow the procedures below: Recyclables (Refer to Annex C) a) Sell your recyclable to our accredited recyclable buyers, KILUS FOUNDATION, who pass from them every Wednesday and LINIS GANDA on Sundays. b) While waiting for them weekly, make sure the accumulating recyclable are segregated, clean, dry, flat (for boxes, cartons, cardboard, paper) and properly stored in their own containers INSIDE YOUR PREMISES. Leaving them outside is in violation of City Ordinance #30-02 and will expose them to rain and dirt, which would render them useless to our recyclable buyers. c) If you do not want to sell your recyclable, bring and donate them to our village Ecology Center located at our park grounds accessed from Asparagus Street. It is open daily from 2:00-4:00 pm. However, they should also be properly segregated, cleaned, dried, and flattened (for boxes, cartons, cardboard, paper). Residual or Latak (Refer to Annex D) a) Give your residuals or “latak” waste to our garbage truck collectors every FRIDAY. b) A green police is deputized to monitor that ONLY residual or “latak” waste is thrown or given to the garbage truck collectors. First time violators shall be sent a warning letter. Second time violators, unless contested, will have no choice but to dispose of their own trash as this will not be picked up anymore.

D.

TREE CUTTINGS/ GARDEN DEBRIS 1. Please remove leaves and put them in trash bags for collection every Friday together with the Residual garbage. Bundle branches and twigs for collection every Saturday.

2.

3.

Store and keep inside your premises, i.e., inside your gates. Do not dump in vacant lots as this is in violation of City Ordinance # 30-02. This will also become an eye sore for our residents and will be out of sight for the garbage truck collectors to notice and pick-up.

E. DOG DROPPINGS 1. You can walk your dogs anytime around the village but be sure to BRING PLASTIC BAGS and/or OLD NEWSPAPERS AT ALL TIMES for use to pick up their droppings or their excreted dirt. Do not leave dog droppings in any part of the Subdivision including roads, sidewalks, alleys, and vacant lots. Dispose of your dog‟s droppings by flushing them in your toilets or burying them and covering with soil properly within your residence‟ premises.

2.

F. GARBAGE CANS/ RECEPTACLES

1.

Keep within your premises, i.e., inside your gates. If your residence is gateless, keep them within your premises and out of sight of other residents. This village rule is in consonance with City Ordinance #30-02, to wit: “Sec.3: It is unlawful for owners/residents/lessees, occupants of residential houses/dwelling units, business establishments and other institutions to bring out garbage, refuse, debris and other unwanted materials outside the scheduled time of garbage collection…” “Sec.6: Any violation of this Ordinance shall be punishable by the following: First Offense: Fine of P1,000.00 Second Offense: Fine of P3,000.00 Third Offense: Fine of P5,000.00 or imprisonment of 30 days…”

G. OTHERS 1. For waste generated from private parties hosted at park facilities: CLEAN AS YOU GO! It is therefore the resident‟s responsibility to ensure that the caterer clean up and bring out with them all kinds of waste generated from

hosting/servicing the party. Leaving waste behind shall result in the forfeiture of your bond (Please refer to the rules on the use of the Park facilities). 2. For waste generated from house construction: Keep within construction premises or within a designated bonded warehouse area, making sure these do not overspill onto village roads, sidewalks, neighbor‟s property lines. Haul them out of the village upon completion of construction (Please refer to the rules on Construction Projects). For food waste of construction workers: Provide a compost pit at site and follow same procedure as home composting.

3.

VII. OTHER RULES AND REGULATIONS A. GARAGE SALE 1. Resident/Homeowners who intend to conduct a garage sale in their homes are advised to inform the Association‟s Administration Office of their plans in order that appropriate security measures can be instituted during the sale period. The period of sale should not exceed two (2) calendar days.

B. FILMING 1. No filming or location shooting of commercial movies or advertisements shall be allowed within the subdivision without the prior written approval of the Association‟s Security Committee who shall evaluate and decide on the proposed filming on the basis of the potential disturbance that it may cause to the other residents within the subdivision.

C. PETS 1. Residents may only keep pet dogs, cats, fish and birds in their residence. However, the Association reserves the right to make the resident limit the number of its pets if found to create unreasonable noise and disturbance to its neighbors. Farm animals (such as chicken, game-cocks, goats, horses, cows, hogs and the like) and wildlife species (such as reptiles, wildcats, wolves or carnivorous fishes) are strictly prohibited to be kept or bred within the subdivision.

2.

3.

Pets must be confined within the member‟s residence and dogs may be taken out only on a leash. The Association‟s employees and security personnel are instructed/authorized to capture any stray animal and turn this over to the Administration Office. Captured stray animal will be disposed of if unclaimed within 48 hours of its captivity. Resident-members shall be responsible for the proper upkeep of their pets and ensure that these do not aggravate other residents with their noise, litter and smell. Pets of any kind are not allowed in the Subdivision‟s park and playground, and Squash Drive.

4.

5.

VIII. ASSOCIATION DUES AND OTHER FEES The Association will collect from its owner / members during the month of January each year an annual assessment that will be used to finance its operations and activities for discharging its functions and responsibilities effectively. The rate of assessment will be established by the Association‟s Board of Directors and will be subject to review and change based on needs. The amount of Association dues and rates are shown in Annex B. Also shown in Annex B are fees for miscellaneous services provided by the Association such as issuance of IDs, endorsement or certification letters for residents, flyers/advertisements, etc.

PART III GUIDELINES FOR HOMEOWNERS AND RESIDENTS

I.

COMMUNITY WELFARE

The Association enjoins all residents and homeowners to respect at all times the rights of their fellow residents particularly where the peaceful enjoyment of their residence in the Subdivision is concerned. The following are some guidelines for the Valle Verde 5 residents and homeowners: 1. 2. Maintain sound and noise at reasonably low levels in our respective homes. Use car horns only when absolutely necessary, as for road safety. Tooting of horns to call for the opening of gates should be done very briefly. Continuous tooting of horns should be avoided. Likewise, any tooting of horns during sleeping hours or late at night should be avoided. Keep one‟s respective frontages and perimeters clean and free from garbage, debris and malodorous elements. It is the resident‟s responsibility to keep its front area clean through regular daily sweeping of dried leaves and all kinds of litter. If a resident has a complaint about his/her neighbor, he/she should try to settle it amicably by talking directly to the person concerned. If the resident needs the Association to mediate, it can submit a written request for this purpose, explaining the background and relevant details. If no resolution is arrived at between the two parties and even with the mediation of the Association, the resident may formally file a complaint with the Barangay Council or if necessary, with the legal courts. SECURITY IN RESIDENTS’ HOMES

3.

4.

II.

While the Association shall exert its best efforts in securing and protecting the Village and its residents, the security and protection of each household is still a primary responsibility of the individual homeowner/resident. The guidelines and tips are as follows: A. PROVIDING SECURITY REINFORCEMENTS 1. Residents with houses having low fences are enjoined to reinforce their perimeter areas for security reasons. Homeowners whose houses have unfenced front yards must exercise extra security precautions, especially at nighttime, to prevent intrusion into their houses. 2. Homeowners with residences that have dimly illuminated compounds/premises are advised to increase their lighting. At nighttime, lights at the front and rear doors and corners of building should be kept on whether the Residents are at home or away. 3. Residents who have not yet registered with the Valle Verde 5 Association their household servants, gardeners, drivers and private guards should register them soonest. Registration has been observed to serve as a psychological deterrent for

these persons to get involved in theft, robbery and other petty crimes while employed inside the Village. 4. Should there be any tall cogon grass growing on vacant spaces in the Village which could serve as hiding places for “intruders”, such should be reported to the Administration for appropriate action. 5. Ladders should be locked away while not in use. 6. Have all locks changed when moving into a new house. 7. Pin tumbler locks on all outside doors offer the best protection. Doors with glass panels should also have double cylinder locks, which require keys on the inside. Sliding glass doors and windows can be better protected by placing a piece of wood in the bottom track, movement is prevented. 8. Residents should keep police type whistles at home. These should be strategically located inside the house, and should easily be retrievable when needed. The idea is to blow as many whistles as possible to signal for help from neighbors and security guards in case of emergency. 9. Large sums of money, expensive jewelry or other valuables should not be kept at home. Rent a safety deposit box in your bank. Leaving large sums of money at home can be a temptation to the other members of the household. 10. Train your maids and houseboy to be security conscious. 11. Private security guards engaged in residence should be spot checked for alertness and clearly informed of your requirements.

B.

SECURITY TIPS WHEN AT HOME 1. Refrain from automatically opening the door whenever the doorbell rings. 2. Demand credentials before admitting salesmen or repairmen. 3. Do not patronize peddlers and ambulant buyers as these can be potential burglars. 4. Outside doors should be kept locked at all times. Some thieves look for residents who are working in the yard, hanging laundry, or otherwise engaged outside. Then, they approach from the opposite side of the house and enter through an unlocked door to steal purses, money, jewelry and other valuable items.

5. If telephone calls with “wrong numbers” are continually received, be suspicious. Do not reveal your own phone number or address to unknown callers and never admit to them that you are alone. 6. Do not continue conversation with “nuisance” callers. 7. When a stranger requests to use your telephone, do not permit him/her to enter the house. 8. Conduct a Security Check every night before retiring. Be sure all doors and windows are locked and appropriate lights are on. 9. In instances when you suddenly discover that a burglar has already entered your house, the following can be done: Turn on lights to frighten a burglar. Burglars are generally interested only in stealing, not harming. Use pre-arranged signals in the form of loud whistles or blinking lights after the burglar has left your house. If you are a victim of thieves, call the Subdivision security and/or police immediately. Do not touch anything until fingerprint technicians and investigators have done their job of lifting latent fingerprints and conducting other security investigation measures. C. SECURITY TIPS WHEN NOT AT HOME 1. When going out at night, leave one or more lights inside the house or perhaps, have a radio playing softly but enough to be heard outside. A residence that presents a lived-in appearance is less conducive to being entered into by burglars. Maids should be instructed to be alert during your absence. Do not leave door keys under flowerpots, doormats or other “obvious” places. If you find a door or window forced open or broken while you were absent, do not enter. The criminal may still be inside. Use a neighbor‟s phone immediately or other means to summon the Subdivision guards or the police. Take great care in the selection of maids, driver‟s etc. Insist that maids take the same precaution as you do. Instruct them not to admit strangers. Give them the phone number where you or the guards, Barangay, or the police can be reached.

HELPING OUR NEIGHBORS

1. 2.

Know your neighbors to easily recognize a stranger who must be observed. In the spirit of neighborliness and community assistance, be alert in protecting not only your own house, but your neighbor‟s as well. Let us be part of the “Neighborhood Watch”. Do not tell a stranger that your neighbor is not at home. Let‟s respond to our neighbor‟s need, as we would want him to respond to ours. A neighbor‟s call to the police may save a life, property or valuable possessions. Let‟s talk with our neighbor about crime problems and crime prevention. We can discuss joint cooperation in keeping watch on each other‟s home. If you see or hear a prowler at your house or at a neighbor‟s premises at night, use the telephone to notify the Village security and/or police. Also indicate alarm with whistle signals, etc. Do not become impatient when help seems slow in coming as people who respond usually approach silently in their attempt to cut off avenues of escape. If you observe suspicious persons or occurrences, contact the Village security or the police immediately. Write down the license number of vehicles used by suspicious persons in the neighborhood and inform the security guard. In case of intrusion, residents are advised to use the following distress signals adopted for the Village in order to get outside help. There are two types of signal that are to be used by residents who are in distress and in need of help. These are: a. One or more whistles blown inside (but preferably outside) the house b. Continuous blinking “on and off” of lights inside and outside the house. (The blinking of lights in a house should be interpreted by residents and guards as a distress signal for help.)

9.

Neighbors who read the distress signals should immediately contact the Valle Verde 5 Security, PNP or the Barangay and request assistance. The guard on duty shall promptly respond in a manner that will not harm, or increase the danger to the members of the beleaguered household. Catching the culprits is secondary to ensuring safety of the household members. Culprits caught by security guards shall be promptly turned over to the Barangay or the Police for investigation and filing of criminal charges.

10.

III.SAFETY A. FIRE PREVENTION 1. Electrical Source Wiring a) A licensed master electrician or electrical engineer should inspect house electrical installations regularly.
