Balcony doors can be locked both with the toggle lock in the door handle and a more secure deadbolt lock mounted on the bottom of the door frame (see photo).

If your sliding door doesn’t have such a deadbolt lock or it’s not working, you can request one (no charge) through a service call to the Administrative Office or better yet, a maintenance request on The Gateway’s resident portal.

What is Zero Waste with Madeleine Trembley

Zero Waste means reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting with nothing going to landfill or incineration.

In a nutshell, to face our civic responsibility, we need to prioritize and optimize a Zero Waste mentality to the best of our ability.

We are all instrumental in changing the enormous problems caused by trash disposal.

By reducing air and water pollution and saving energy, recycling offers a significant environmental benefit: it reduces emissions of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and chlorofluorocarbons that contribute to global climate change.

Thank you for your contribution. We can make a difference for our neighbors and the planet.
