The sticker that was placed on your can was installed by the DPW in an effort to curb the unacceptable items from being placed in the cans. The stickers lay out what is acceptable while also stating what shouldn’t be in them. These stickers are being installed on every recycling can in the Village.
The Department of Public Works asks that you have your items out by 7:00am. If you had them out by that time, please contact Village Hall. If not, call backs will be charged for a fee of $45 each time.
Plastic bags get tangled in the processing equipment. Plastic bags can be recycled at many department stores in the area. Waste Management states that the best practice is to place items directly in the recycling can with no bag at all.
Your recycling container could have been tagged or not collected for several reasons, most likely though, you had plastic bags in your recycling. Plastic bags and items that can tangle, like a garden hose, are prohibited material to put in your recycling can.
Individual garbage and recycling cans were provided to each home by the Village of Bayside. When moving, you can take any additional garbage or recycling cans you purchased with you or you can contact Village Hall to have the additional cans picked up.
The answer is simple, we don’t know. On all collection periods, residents must have their collection materials curbside by 7am the day of their collection period. For recycling and garbage, follow the schedule. For yard waste/leaf collection, have your items curbside by 7am Monday morning of the collection week.
Fairy Chasm Road and all roads to the north are on Monday; anything south of Fairy Chasm Road will be on Tuesday. Recycling alternates every other week north/south. Schedules are available online. Schedules change around holidays so be sure to check the calendar during these times.
Bayside participates in a Milwaukee County program that allows Bayside residents to dispose of their household hazardous waste at various Hazardous Waste facilities. For more information please contact the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District at 272-5100 or visitwww.mmsd.com.
Currently, Bayside provides curbside collection of leaves, fruit debris, garden debris, twigs and brush. The Village does not pick up grass clippings, thatch, sod, or contractor-generated landscaping debris. If you utilize the services of a lawn service, landscape contractor, tree service, etc., you must make arrangements with them to dispose of their debris.
It depends. Please do not overflow your bags during collection. An informative bagged yard waste collectionvideo can be found on the Village of Bayside YouTube Channel. This video explains the do’s and don’ts during yard waste collection.
Please have all contents out curbside by 7am on the first day of collection. Village crews come through once, so not putting it out by that time can cause your property to be missed. Another reason might be that your bag(s) had content that the Village does not collect. Please visit the Village of Bayside’s YouTube channel for avideo of what to do during bagged yard waste collection.
The Village of Bayside is divided into nine (9) sections. Of these sections, DPW works through the Village going into each zone one time. Bagged yard waste collection ends on Friday, so it is possible that DPW has not reached your section yet. Please visit the Village of Bayside’s YouTube channel for avideo of what to do during bagged yard waste collection.
Yard waste is collected in the Village April through November. Loose leaves are only collected in the fall. During the spring and summer, leaves should be bagged for collection. In addition to roadside collection, the Village also offers select drop off dates for yard waste and excess recycling.
The Village contracted with a certified arborist who completed a Village tree right-of-way inspection which yields a condition report on every Village-owned tree. The trees being marked for removal have been declared dead or dying and too far gone by the certified arborist.
The Village will make a determination if a tree is in the right-of-way. If it is not in the right-of-way, the survey can help determine if it is on the property. Sometimes there are metal stakes slightly under the ground at the corners of the property.
No, the Village cannot go onto private property to retrieve a downed privately-owned tree. You will have to perform the work yourself or hire a private company. This Village cannot recommend any private companies
First, the Village would need to see if the tree is in the right-of-way. The right-of-way is generally 10-15 feet back from the road, but varies throughout the Village. If the tree is on the right-of-way, the tree belongs to the Village of Bayside and Department of Public Works will remove it. If any of the tree is on private property, the Department of Public Works will not cut down the tree and the resident will need to remove the tree.
The Village encourages neighbors to communicate in order to prevent possible disagreements. You are allowed to trim the tree to the property line; however, you cannot do so in a manner that would cause the tree future health issues.
No, Village code states that no sump pump, downspout, catch basin, drain tile, swimming pool, hot tub, or spa drain outfall, including temporary extensions added thereto, may direct water within ten feet of adjoining properties or otherwise affect drainage on adjoining properties, including, but not limited to, federal, state, county and village owned properties, thoroughfares and rights-of-way. If you notice a violation of this code, you may contact Village Hall for a property maintenance inspection.
While there are no guaranteed ways to prevent backups, there are a few things you can do to prevent the likelihood of one occurring in your home. During heavy rains, do not run the washer or dishwasher if you don’t have to. Also, limit the amount of time in the shower.
Inspect your lateral and perform regular maintenance and cleaning to your private lateral allowing water to exit easily.
If a plumber deems it not a private property issue, please contact Dispatch at (414) 351-9900 and they will contact DPW. If the incident occurs during non-office hours, owners are encouraged to contact a private plumber and inform DPW at their earliest convenience.
A private sanitary lateral is the pipe that connects your home (sinks, showers, toilets) to the Village’s sanitary sewer system. The private lateral ownership and maintenance responsibility is that of the property owner.
It is an underground stormwater management tool that is used to collect water under the surface and allow it to slowly disperse into the ground. It is constructed of stone, pea gravel, sand and finally dirt which will be replanted with grass.
Village code states that grass cannot be longer than 5 inches. The Village encourages neighbors to communicate in order to prevent possible disagreements. You may contact the Police Department at 414-206-3916 if issues remain unresolved.
Branches up to 6 inches in diameter and no longer than 5 feet in length may be placed at the edge of the road for collection. Branches should be neatly stacked, and cuts ends parallel to the road. Piles bigger than 5’x5’x10′ require a Special Pick-Up.
In the fall, leaves must be raked into a single pile at the side of the road. Please do not mix leaves with other yard waste or rake leaves into the road. Piles that include material other than leaves WILL NOT be collected.
It is not littering, the toilet paper acts as a sealant to hold the tar in place after the crew has performed road crack filling, allows for traffic to drive on it immediately, and prevents it from sticking to car tires which will pull the tar out of the roadway.
The grass seed that the Village uses takes anywhere from 10-21 days to show signs of growth. There are so many variables that play into this such as the time of year, temperature, and moisture being the main factors. If restoration has happened in your yard, please help the Village out and give it some water.
Eventually, yes. The Village maintains a program by the State of Wisconsin called the Pacer Program. This program rates every road in the Village of Bayside. During the culvert project, residents have the option to find a private contractor to perform the work or use the Village’s out of network program. The out of network program does not include repairing the driveway.
