About 69 Banks Street

About 69 Banks Street


Your apartment is equipped with a garbage disposal, which is activated either by flipping the nearby wall switch or by inserting the disposal cover (kitchen sink stopper) in the position specified in the directions on the handle of the disposal. Disposals are not designed to process large amounts of food and should not be used for fibrous foods (i.e., celery, carrots, potatoes, and other types of foods with peels).

Laundry Facilities

A washer and dryer are available in each apartment. We request that the laundry facilities not be used outside of the hours of 8:00 AM—10:00 PM to minimize disturbance to your neighbors. If you experience any problems with the machines, please contact the Property Management Office. To reduce your laundry’s environmental impact, HUH recommends only washing full loads on the cold water cycle. See cleanandgreenvision.com for more sustainable laundry tips.

Pet policy

Pets are not allowed in 69 Banks Street, with the exception of fish in a 50-gallon or smaller aquarium.
