Email addresses and Phone numbers of Board members, Liaisons
Recent increased incidence of spam emails and spam calls to board members and liaisons, dictates the removal of this information from publicly visible webpages in this website. Birnamwood Homeowner Association members can find this information in the "Residents Only" page, under the Homeowners Info tab, which requires login (and a one-time registration.)
This information will also be removed from the November 2020 issue of The Winds newsletter.
Construction Scrap Wood and Sheetrock
Buckingham will NOT collect scrap wood or sheetrock placed in the waste bins. With all the repair and remodeling going on at Birnamwood, some residents were surprised to learn this. Contractors can and will usually haul away the waste materials, if it was agreed to in advance. But Do-It-Yourselfers must remove materials on their own or pay someone to do it.
FYI: The closest dump is operated by Hennepin County just across the river off I35W in Bloomington. The fee is based on the amount of the materials. (h/t Terry Sarazin)
Birnamwood Homes Exterior Paint
Please be careful to use the formulation that is specified in the chart here. Other formulations may look similar (in the store) but will not match the specifications, and will cause you to have to redo work, expense and hassle.
Recently a homeowner used a 2013 paint can formulation and it simply did not match! Also make sure to use the Sherwin Williams store in Lakeville. For the details click here, please.

|Recycling and Waste Collection|
The Buckingham Companies collect our waste and recycled bins. Collection day is Wednesday. Recycles are collected (from the yellow-lid bins) every other Wednesday.
Please do not roll out the waste bins BEFORE 6pm on the night before collection. To ease the access for the collection trucks, please place the bins at least 3 feet away from your garage wall, and at least 3 feet apart from each other.
Collection Days Calendar.
Buckingham is closed on certain holidays. When the holiday occurs on collection week, the collection will be delayed to the next day (i.e. Thursday). See days highlighted in yellow in the schedule here.
