Tuesday morning, DPW crews removed the cinder block retaining wall that held mulch. Residents can now bring yard waste and recycling during a monthly, four-hour block when crews will be on hand to help take unwanted materials.
Bayside's unmanned, 24-hour yard waste drop off site is now closed. But the Village Board is trying to turn a problem into an opportunity by adding a service for residents, instead of simply eliminating one. Village Manager Andy Pederson said DPW crews were out Tuesday morning removing the last of the cinder block retaining wall and repositioning "No Dumping" signs, effectively dismantling the site. The yard waste drop-off site, located on the north end of Village Hall at 201 E. Fairy Chasm Rd., was open 24 hours a day and unsupervised. This allowed residents the flexibility to stop by any time. However, with odd items like toilets and electronics showing up to a site that was only meant for "anything you can pull or trim from your yard…

Doing some yard work and need some mulch? If you live in either village, you can avoid a costly trip to a home improvement store and just swing by the DPW for your free mulch.
As trees begin to bud and the white fluffy stuff has finally disappeared, it's time to talk mulch.

Similarly, Fox Point also has mulch for its residents. Last year 146 Fox Point residents took advantage of the free mulch, according to a letter from Director of Public Works Scott Brandmeier, so with that success, the…

Department of Community and Utility Services will remove yard waste beginning April 4.
Spring means yard cleanup, maybe raking some leaves and digging up the garden to get it ready for planting. In an effort to help residents with removing this debris, Bayside offers yard waste removal beginning April 4. "Yard waste is a separate collection that includes organic material,"said Alex Henderson, director of community and utility services. These are items that don't really belong in the garbage, but still need to be removed, like bagged leaves, bagged garden debris, twigs or brush. Administrators just ask that the debris be placed at the end of the driveway by 7 a.m. in a reusable container, or placed in a biodegradable bag. Just like recycling and garbage pickup though, there is a set schedule for each area within the village. …
