Tip of the Week

Keep all twigs and branches out of leaf piles.  Piles mixed with branches will not be collected as they can damage the leaf collection equipment.  If you have yard waste, keep it in a separate pile, or bring it to the Village's yard waste drop off site.

Leaves in the 21 Century

Loose leaf collection will be continuing next week.  As many of you may have seen, the Village is utilizing a new automated collection vehicle.  This truck is operated by one person, allowing for easier pickup than the trailer mounted system.   


Next week, the following sections will be collecleaf vacted:

  • Section 5 - Monday, October 24
  • Section 6 - Tuesday, October 25
  • Section 7 - Wednesday,  October 26
  • Section 8 - Thursday, October 27

Remember, you must keep your loose leaves separate from all twigs and branches, or the pile will NOT be collected.  Leaves mixed with yard waste will clog or damage the equipment.

One Week To Go! 


We're just a few days away from the final Clean Up Day of the year.  Stop over to the Bayside Village Hall on Saturday, October 29 between 9 am - 3 pm.  Proof of residency is required.  The south parking lot will be filled with disposal options for just about every item you may have. 


As with past events, to participate, residents wihabitat ll need to bring either a non-perishable food items for Hunger Task Force or a monetary donation.  All proceeds will go to breast cancer awareness in southeast Wisconsin.  Also, new for this event - all usable construction materials will be taken by Habitat for Humanity for home construction.


Wondering what you can bring to Clean Up Days, here is a quick rundown of exactly what you can dispose of:

  • Garbage/Recycling
  • TVs
  • Electronics (Computers, Printers, Keyboards, etc.)
  • Old Construction Material (to be taken by Habitat for Humanity)
  • GoodWill Donations
  • Prescription Medication
  • Dehumidifiers

The Village will be unable to accept any Household Hazardous Waste.  If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer for the event, please contact Village Hall at 351-8811. 

Garbage or Recycling? 


A quick reminder regarding all garbage and recycling pickups.  Crews can only accept containers that are placed out for collection on their scheduled day.  For example, crews will not take a recycling container that is set out on a garbage collection day.  To do so would defeat the purpose of a separate collection, causing recycling to be mixed with garbage. 


Remember, the brown/tan container is for garbage only, and the dark green container is for recycling only.  Each container has the acceptable material written on the side (garbage or recycling).  If you have any questions, please contact Village Hall at 351-8811.
