There have been multiple instances of large scale trash dumping at the corner of Boiling Brook Parkway and Ashley Drive.

If you happen to witness dumping or suspicious behavior in this area, do not approach the suspects. Please call the Montgomery County Police Non-Emergency line immediately at 301-279-8000 to report it with a description of the suspects and their vehicle if possible. If caught, illegal dumpers are subject to a minimum $500 civil fine and possible criminal prosecution.

Community Yard Sale Update – Volunteers Needed

Due to a lack of volunteers, we regretfully announce that we must put the Community Yard Sale on hiatus and have canceled this Fall’s yard sale.

Our community has held a yard sale at Loehmann’s Plaza twice a year for decades. In recent years, the Boy Scouts ran the event, and we are appreciative of their efforts. Over time, we have seen declining participation, particularly from neighborhood residents. In addition, the rise of EBay, CraigsList and Nextdoor, have provided alternative means for selling household goods. Currently, we do not have volunteers available to run the Yard Sale. If you are interested in helping us continue this event, please contact us at Info@randolphcivic.org. Duties include putting up and taking down the banners, advertising the event on craigslist, setting up flag streamers/cones, and collecting booth fees.

If new volunteers are not found, we will put the event on hiatus until we can find someone. It is possible that we could reduce to once a year if needed.

Another possibility is to replace the Loehmann’s event with a neighborhood Yard Sale Day. With this kind of event, we would pick a day to advertise a community-wide yard sale, and residents would just setup wares in their front yards. Signage would be available to direct people to participating homes. This kind of event would require far less volunteer effort. If you would like us to pursue this option, please come to the October Meeting- we will discuss after the District 18 delegation portion.
