Last month, families living on-post received a housing survey from SatisFacts to determine resident satisfaction. The data collected from this survey helps Corvias improve your experience living on-post.
The SatisFacts survey is for all types of residential management companies. Corvias Military Living has earned a superior rating from SatisFacts the past eight years and has also achieved the highest score for companies with at least 10,000 homes seven times.
Congratulations to APG SatisFacts survey winners! All winners were chosen at random. The grand prize winner of a $500 gift card for completing and returning the SatisFacts survey is SFC Antonio and Mrs. Michelle Selmon. Other winners of a $250 gift card per community are:
Edgewood – SGT Haneef and Mrs. Sarah Craig
Patriot Village – PFC Thomas and Liana Walker
Bayside and Plumb Point Loop area – SPC Emmanuel and Mrs. Catherine Lumbres
We appreciate the valuable feedback! With your feedback, we will continue to provide the best homes, community, service and value to you. Thank you for allowing us to provide your family a home.

After the holidays, residents are often left with a lot of bulk trash and boxes. We have a convenient weekly bulk trash service available for residents. We ask that you break down all boxes, and place in front of your home on bulk trash day. There are two dates available for Christmas tree pickup. Residents may places Christmas trees in front of their homes on January 6th and January 11th for pickup. Please be sure to remove all inorganic decorations from the trees.
For normal bulk trash service, please follow the Wednesday pickup schedule. Families that have a large amount of bulk items should contact their Community Office.
All decorations should be removed from the exterior of the homes 15 days after the holiday. This provides everyone ample time to take down their decorations and store them. If you have any questions regarding the policy on decorations please refer to the Resident Responsibility Guide(RRG).
Garbage disposals are extremely convenient way to get rid of excess food, but if you aren’t careful with what you put down the disposal you could run into major problems. Contrary to popular belief, garbage disposal can’t be used for all types of food. In fact, certain foods should never go down the disposal. Did you know items such as pasta, rice, grease, potato and banana peels can clog your pipes?

Replace the air filter in your home every 30 days. Air filters are available at your Community Office for no additional cost.
