Article Summary: 

Waste management done poorly is expensive and requires more expensive garbage pickup services. Effective waste separation practices reduce collection costs by 60% or more. Pets defecating on grass, roadways, walkways, elevators and in lobbies create unnecessary clean up and repair costs. Damaged areas present communities in a poor light. Utility consumption is the largest line item in a condominium corporation budget.

Small improvements can make a big difference, such as preventing leaks and measuring unit use. False fire alarms, video security systems, regular elevator maintenance, and enforcement of rules of conduct are all easy targets. Smart communities establish clear rules of conduct to ensure those failing to abide by them are responsible for costs.
