Keep Your Eyes Open For EAB


In southeast Wisconsin we are now at the peak of adult Emerald Ash Borer emergence. 

As you work around your yard, please keep an eye out for green beetles walking on or flying around ash trees. For more information on the emerald ash borer (EAB), please visit Wisconsin's Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCAP) Emerald Ash Borer website.  


4th of July Tradition

The Village of Bayside 4th of July parade 
has a long history. Many of you have been participating for a number of years. This Studebaker first appeared in the parade back 1972 and can still be seen in the 
Village today! If you have any old pictures 
of Bayside we would love to see them!

Yard Waste Pick Up Reminders

The next yard waste collection pickups start again on Wednesday, July 31. Please only put your yard waste out the week of collection. Also, in order to be able to pick up everyone's yard waste the amount of waste that the crews can pick up at one home is 250 cubic 

feet, which is roughly 10ft x 5ft x 5ft. If the crews notice excessive yard waste they will leave a tag on the pile.


If your yard waste is tagged you may schedule a special pick-up from the Village for $75 or make alternate arrangements to have the west removed. Any questions on this may be directed to Alex Henderson at 414-351-8812.  



Clean Up Day Success!

Thanks to the volunteers, Village Staff and residents who participated in the Clean up Day on Sunday! Check out next Tuesday's Talk for all of the collection numbers.
