1. JANUARY 2021 ASSESSMENT INFORMATION. From our Community Manager: The first quarter 2021 invoice coupons are running late due to a new software system at Summit as well as a new vendor for invoicing. On top of that, the post office still seems behind in their deliveries. If you want to make a payment now instead of waiting for the invoice/coupon book, you can mail a check to:
Park West Community
c/o Summit Management, Processing Center
PO Box 95366
Las Vegas, NV 89193-5366
Please make sure your Kings Park West Townhomes address is on the check. Summit apologizes for the delay.

https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/publicworks/recycling-trash/household-hazardous-waste for more information.
4.1 Latex Paint. Let air dry and throw solidified container in the regular trash. (Tip: You may pour the paint onto newspaper. Once it dries, roll up the newspaper and dispose of it in the regular trash.) Other options include using a latex paint hardener or kitty litter to solidify the latex paint. Once solidified, dispose of it in the regular trash. If you are unable to let the latex paint dry, you may take the container to a Household Hazardous Waste Site. Reusable FULL or near full cans of latex paint should be taken to Household Hazardous Site for donation to Habitat for Humanity. Notify staff of any reusable FULL or near full cans of latex paint for donation.
4.2 Oil or Lead-based Paint. Take to Household Hazardous Waste Site. If container is empty, it can be disposed of in the trash. DO NOT attempt to dry out or solidify oil-based paint.
4.3 Aerosol (Spray Cans, Compressed Gas Cartridges). All aerosol cans, whether empty, full, or partially full, must be recycled at the Household Hazardous Waste drop-off sites at I-66 Transfer Station located at 4618 West Ox Road or at the I-95 Landfill Complex. Do NOT
place them in your recycling bin or at the curb for trash pickup. All types of aerosol cans are compressed containers, which are regulated as hazardous waste by the EPA. Drop off small, compressed gas cartridges (CO2, NO2, Oxygen, Helium) typically used in dispensers (e.g., helium, whipped cream, soda) at Household Hazardous Waste drop-off sites.
