8. When it’s time to replace the balls in the ball machines, use the balls from the “Holding Container”. Please test the balls by squeezing them to make sure you minimize the number of dead balls that are being used in the ball machine, place the bad balls in the Green recycle box. When the “Recycle box is full close and seal it by closing the lid. Someone will bring it to the HOA 1 Admin building for UPS pick-up.

 Return the mesh bag to the shed.
