Recycle and Trash Cart Lease Program
Republic Services is offering CountrySide residents the opportunity to LEASE larger wheeled-covered trash and/or recycling carts for the very reasonable price of $12 per year, per container.

We hope that residents will be able to make use of this special offer!

Upon the purchase of your new home a settlement sheet or a deed of trust will be sent to the Proprietary Office notifying them of new ownership. Within two to four weeks you will then receive a coupon booklet showing the amount of your monthly assessment fee and the dates that they are due. Following is information that is relative to this payment. This information should assist you in understanding Proprietary procedures and the services which are provided to you for this fee.
Assessment payments are due on the 1st of the month and are considered late if received after 5:00 p.m. on the 10th of the month. Any payment received after 5:00 p.m. on the 10th will be assessed a late fee. In the event that the 10th should fall on a Sunday or on a recognized federal holiday, the delinquency date will be 5:00 p.m. on the first day of resumption of normal business operations. Exemptions will not be made for those payees claiming that the envelope “postmark” date predates the 10th day of the month.
Ways to make your payment are: Automatic Withdrawal (ACH), By Mail, In the Office, and Online. Click HERE for more detailed information.
If an assessment payment is delinquent, a notice will be sent to the homeowner requesting payment in full, including the applicable late fee.
If the delinquent assessment is not received within thirty days from the date of the delinquent notice, the account will be forwarded to the Proprietary’s legal counsel for collection action. If the principal maintenance assessment is paid within the applicable thirty day time period, but the cost of collection fee is not paid within this thirty days, a second delinquent notice will be sent to the homeowner. If the cost of collection fee is not paid within thirty days of the second delinquent notice, the account will be forwarded to the Proprietary’s legal counsel for collection action.

Identity Theft: What is it? Preventative Measures:
18.2 – 186.3 State Code of Virginia defines identity theft as follows: it shall be unlawful for any person, without the authority or permission of the person who is the subject of the identifying information, with the intent to defraud, for his own use of the use of the third person to:
1. Obtain, record or access identifying information which is not available to the general public that would assist in accessing financial resources, obtaining identification documents, or obtaining benefits of such other person; or
2. Obtain goods or services through the use of identifying information of such other person; or
3. Obtain identification documents in such other persons name.
Your greatest asset for securing your good name is understanding where the thieves get your information. Here are a few of the many ways thieves can obtain your personal identifying information:
Coming into possession of your lost or stolen wallet or purse.
Stealing your mail, or diverting it to another mailbox via a change of address request.
“Dumpster Diving” into your trash and gathering important documents.
“Pretext” calls where the thief poses as your bank, internet services provider, or other organization with which you may or may not have financial dealing and they call you to “verify your account information” because of a problem they had with their “record system.”
Other crimes such as burglary or breaking into a vehicle where the thief looks to steal financial information, wallets, purses, or other items containing such information.
Internet transactions or unsecured sites or with illegitimate companies posing as a reputable “safe” business with which you may do business.
Knowing how thieves get information, it is now clear how best to protect that information: you should begin immediately to practice these simple steps:
Protect your social security number, credit card numbers, account passwords, and other personal information. Use common sense, and be suspicious when things don’t seem right. Never divulge your information over the phone unless you initiated the call. If personal information is requested ask questions. It is your right to know why it’s needed, how it will be used, and who needs it.
Minimize the damage in case your wallet gets lost or stolen. Don’t carry around more checks, credit cards, or other bank items than you really need. Limit the number of credit cards you carry by canceling the ones you don’t use. Don’t carry your social security number in your wallet or have it pre-printed on your checks. Pick passwords and PIN numbers that will be tough for someone else to figure out. Don’t keep this information on or near your checkbook, ATM card or debit cards.
Protect your incoming and outgoing mail. Promptly remove mail from your mailbox after it has been delivered. If you’re going on vacation have your mail held at your local post office or ask someone you know and trust to collect your mail. Deposit outgoing mail in the postal service’s blue collection boxes, hand it directly to a mail carrier or take it to a local post office.
Keep thieves from turning your trash into their cash. “Dumpster Divers” pick through trash looking for pre-approved credit card applications and receipts, cancelled checks, bank statements, expired charge cards and other documents or information they can use to counterfeit or order new checks or credit cards. To keep these from happening use a “cross-cut” shredder and shred items.
Practice home security. Safely store checks, credit cards, or other financial documents. Don’t advertise to burglars you are not at home. Use timers on your lights and temporarily stop delivery of your newspaper or mail and ask a trusted neighbor to pick up any items that may arrive unexpectedly at your home.
Pay attention to your bank account statements and credit card bills. Always check into discrepancies in your records or if you notice something suspicious, such as a missing payment or unauthorized withdrawal. Also, contact your institution if a bank statement or credit card bill doesn’t arrive on time.
Practice “on-line” or internet safety. Be suspicious of web offers that seem too good to be true. Ensure the web site you are using is legitimate, or has been formally examined and certified secure and reliable by a legitimate certifying agency such as the Better Business Bureau.
If someone has stolen your identity, the Federal Trade Commission recommends you take three actions immediately.
1. First, contact the fraud departments of each of the three major credit bureaus. Tell them to flag your file with a fraud alert.
2. Second, contact the creditors for any accounts that have been tampered with or opened fraudulently. Follow up with a written statement.
3. Third, file a report with your local police or sheriff’s department in the community where it took place. Keep a copy in case your creditors need proof of the crime.
In an effort to better reach out to the citizens of CountrySide, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Community Policing Section is providing new “Action Request Forms” to be made available. The form is self-explanatory and easy to complete. It can be completed and either mailed or dropped off at the CountrySide Proprietary Office. Expect your Community Policing Officer to personally contact you about your complaint. Confidentiality will be maintained if desired. The “Action Request Form” is not intended to substitute the efforts of traditional patrol but rather to initiate relief for issues that effect your quality of life and that need to be approached through more long-term problem solving strategies.
ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL
Loudoun County requires that every dog over 6 months old be licensed each year. Dogs are not allowed to roam at large, whether licensed or not. The renewal period for purchasing licenses is November 1 – January 31.
Proof that the animal has been vaccinated for rabies by a licensed veterinarian must be presented before a license can be issued. A certificate signed by a veterinarian confirming neutering or spaying will qualify a dog for lower tag fees.
