Trash Chute Door System Status

Posted By on December 22, 2022

The pneumatic system that operates the trash chute doors on all the floors is failing.  On several floors our Engineer has had to remove the red operating button and disengage the chute door from the system to allow it to operate manually.  The Chute Doctor has provided a report on this issue which notes the system is antiquated and likely not repairable.  Installing a new system would be quite cost prohibitive, so we’ve asked them to research the issue further.  We hope to be able to put a set of options in front of the Board at their January meeting.  Please look for updates on this matter in the coming weeks, and if your chute door has been impacted, please open and close manually when disposing of your trash.
