Trash barrels and recycling bins are located behind each building for your use. Trash and recycling bins will be labeled by unit number; please only use your designated receptacles. All trash must be in closed trash bags; no loose items may be put in the barrels. Bring your trash and recycling out to the curb for pick-up on Tuesdays. Bring your receptacles back behind the building after they have been emptied. If trash receptacles are not returned to the building by Wednesday at 10:30am, you will be charged a fee. If you leave any household trash and/or large items in or around the building or grounds, you will be charged for their removal and disposal; the minimum charge is $25.00 per bag.
Each unit is equipped with a washer/dryer.
With a valid Port Property Management parking permit, you may park in any spot within the designated lots (Lot 1 – 11), located on Margaret and Mussey Street. Parking is on a first come first serve basis. A valid PPM parking permit (with the PPM logo) must be in clear view of the front windshield at all times or you will likely be towed. During the winter months, we plow after every storm. If we are plowing, you will need to move your car out of the lot from 9 am until 3 pm (unless the city of South Portland has called a daytime parking ban). Please call (207) 761-0832 ext. 2, or check our website after 7 am to find out if we are plowing. Please be sure to comply with the snow removal policy, as failure to do so will likely result in your vehicle being towed at your own expense. See our Parking Policy.
Per the City of South Portland, from December 1st until April 1st, you cannot park on-street between midnight and 6 am. You may be ticketed and/or be towed.
