FAQ Topic: Yard Waste

What yard waste items will not be picked up and what should I do with them?

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.

Why is my yard waste not collected?

First, check for a pink tag. It usually has information why the pile wasn’t collected. Two main offenses are restricted material (i.e. grass, dirt) and the pile is larger than the allowed size.

When is yard waste collected?

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.
