Thought of the Week

succeed is always to try just one more time."

2013 Collection Calendar

This Week in History

On April 30, 1789, George Washington is sworn in as the first President of the United States at Federal Hall in New York City. 

That's A Lot of Drugs!

Over the past few weeks, the Bayside Police Department has collected a lot of prescription drugs. 

  • 319 pounds of drugs since May 2012 (That's enough to fill the entire bed of a pickup truck!)
  • 75 pounds of prescription drugs at the Spring Clean-Up Day
  • 21 pounds of prescription  drugs for the National Take Back Initiative this past Saturday. 

These efforts are important because they keep prescription drugs from being flushed down the toilet and into the water supply. They also keep prescription drugs out of the hands of children and those that might abuse them.


Great work Bayside!


A Long Time Coming

For those who are participating in the 2013 voluntary water connection project, construction season is almost here.  The general contractor, Dorner Construction, is scheduled to begin work on Monday, May 13.  


The first phase of the project will include connecting the new Sendiks building on Brown Deer Road, with work starting on Glencoe, moving southeast on Iroquois, then moving south on Mohawk to connect the commercial building.  The entire project is expected to be substantially completed by the beginning of September, at which time the Village will begin road construction work on Malibu Dr., Marti Court and Navajo Rd. 


Residents will be receiving a more formal letter via mail that helps outline additional details, and also provides contact information related to construction.  A Village website page will also be created to help provide continual updates on project status.  For additional information, please contact Alex Henderson at 414-351-8812. 

Yard Waste Collection


The Village crews are out in the Village picking up yard waste every other week. Yard waste will be picked up again next week Wednesday (May 8) through Friday (May 10). To ensure that your yard waste is picked up please have it out by 7 am on Wednesday.  
Please only put your yard waste out the week of pickup. This helps to eliminate vehicle and pedestrian congestion and keeps our Village looking nice. 


The Village  has a drop-off night for yard waste, recycling, and electronics coming up on Tuesday, May 14. You can bring yard waste and any recycling (including electronics). The items will be collected at the sled hill parking lot located off of Fairy Chasm Rd.  


You can view the complete yard waste collection schedule on the Village website.


Ready for Rain

The rain continues to fall this spring. There are lots of things we can do to help reduce the negative effects of rain water.

  • Purchase a rain barrel. You can reduce water pollution, lower your water costs, and help preserve Lake Michigan -- all by using a rain barrel. You can purchase one at Village Hall at a 10% discount through May 31st. 
  • Plant a rain garden. By keeping the water on your property you can help to reduce polluted stormwater runoff and seweroverflows. Rain gardens also keep our Village looking beautiful. 
  • Check your sump pump. Please do not direct sump pumps into your basement drain tiles. This could lead to a basement back up for you or your neighbor. Sump pumps should be directed outside.
No Mulch.... Yet!


A number of you have inquired about getting mulch from the Village. We had mulch available last year and are hoping to providing it again this year. However, at this time we do not have any mulch available. We will let you know when it is ready through the Buzz.
