2013 Collection Calendar

This Week in History

On January 5, 1933, construction begins on the Golden Gate Bridge, as workers began excavating 3.25 million cubic feet of dirt for the structure's huge anchorages.  The Golden Gate Bridge officially opened on May 27, 1937, the longest bridge span in the world at the time. The first public crossing had taken place the day before, when 200,000 people walked, ran and even roller skated over the new bridge. 

Lake Michigan H2O 

Over the past many months, residents of four shared wells have explored connecting to the Mequon Water Utility and receive water from Lake Michigan.  What started out as an estimate and hope of 50 homes blossomed into approximately 135 properties voluntary joining the Bayside Residential Water Access Association (BRWWA).   


Currently, 27% of Bayside homes are connected to municipal water.  The voluntary water project with the additional homes would bring this total to nearly 34%. 


For more information on the (BRWWA),  contact Bayside resident Howard Feiges.  The Village is assisting property owners with twenty year financing, Wisconsin State Statute outlines a very specific schedule that requires notice, public hearing, and assessment letters for the special B-series bonds.  This form of financing has no impact on the general Village tax levy.  Only those homes voluntarily participating are responsible for repayment of the bond. 


The project, which is entering the final engineering phases, will be sent out to bid in February, with construction tentatively scheduled for May/June of 2013.  

Holiday Tree & Wreath Collection 

The Village will be collecting Holiday trees and wreaths again this year.  We ask that all metal or foreign items be removed from the materials as they will be chipped into mulch with all other yard waste mat



These items will be picked up the following days:

  • Thursday & Friday - January 10 & 11
  • Thursday & Friday - January 17 & 18

Please make sure all trees or wreaths are curbside by 7am to ensure pickup. 

Coyote Education 

The Village of Bayside will be hosting an informational workshop for interested residents on February 6 on the subject of the coyotes in our communities.  The meeting will start at 6:30 pm on February 6, held in the cafeteria of Bayside Middle School, 601 E. Ellsworth Lane. Participants can park in the north parking lot, located off Ellsworth Lane.


Main presenters include Lynsey White-Dasher, Urban Wildlife Specialist from the Humane Society of the United States, and Tom Isaac, Wildlife Biologist from the Wisconsin DNR. They will discuss and demonstrate several issues, including:

  • Insight on coyote ecology and behavior
  • Why coyotes are in our communities
  • How to deal with conflicts with coyotes
  • Tips for coexistence
  • Coyote hazing techniques
  • Questions - Ask the Experts

Village of Bayside Police Department officials, as well as VIllage staff, will also be on hand to answer questions from residents with regards to coyotes in the community and throughout the metropolitan area.

It's Cold Out There

Take extra care during the severe cold.  While outside shoveling or just playing in the snow it's important to cover exposed areas.  Feet, hands, noses and ears are the most vulnerable parts during cold weather.  

Hypothermia and frostbite are the most common cold emergencies people experience during winter weather.  Symptoms of hypothermia include exhaustion, shivering and slurred speech.


Frostbite is another hazard in winter weather and can occur in as little as five minutes if the temperature is cold enough.  Symptoms include a burning sensation on the skin and a white color to the skin.  Get out of the cold and gradually warm your hands and feet.  Don't put hands and feet in very hot water at first because that can burn the skin, but rather soak them in warm water and increase the temperature gradually.


Keep Clear 

A friendly reminder to everyone regarding all garbage and recycling collections:

  • Please keep carts clear of all other objects including mailboxes, trees, etc.  Remember to look overhead too, as the carts are lifted during collection;
  • Only materials inside the container will be taken.  Please do NOT set material on top or around the container;
  • Remember to face the open side of the container towards the road to ensure all materials are emptied when collected. 
  • Keep carts out of the roadway when placed for collection.  This is especially important for snow removal.  

Constantly having excess material for garbage or recycling?  Consider purchasing an additional container.  Stop into Village Hall at any time to purchase one - the containers will be delivered to your home the same week. 

Community Development Authority Gets the Call

The Village Board has requested that the Community Development Authority look into determining some options for improving undeveloped or underutilized properties, as well as to explore the best long-term economic development methods for the area specifically on the western corridor that abuts Interstate-43, north of Brown Deer Road and west of Port Washington Road.
