Bay Village Service Department City Services

The City of Bay Village has contracted with Bartlett Tree Experts to do a complete inventory and visual assessment of city trees, which includes the trees on the tree lawn and city-owned property.  They will be starting at the west end of the City on Thursday, November 21, 2019, and will work their way east to the Rocky River border.  This will take approximately three (3) to four (4) weeks to complete.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Bay Village Service Department at (440) 871-1221

Leaves in Street












 The Bay Village Police Department and the Service Department would like to remind residents that leaves should not be placed in the street right of way.  Placing leaves in the street is a violation of City Ordinance 543.05, "Materials on Street or Sidewalk".  More importantly, placing leaves creates safety issues. 

Placing leaves in the roadway narrows the street creating an issue with passing traffic.  Parking over leaves can cause fires from the vehicle's catalytic converter.  Bay Village has experienced one such fire already this season.  Piles of leaves are attractive to young children who like to play in the leaves, placing them nearly unseen in the street right of way.   Wet leaves on the roadway can cause a slick surface similar to ice, increasing the chances of traffic crashes.  In addition, sewer grates and curbs blocked by leaves can cause standing water on the streets and increase the incidents of blocked sewers. 

Our Service Department makes every effort to cover the entire city for leaf pickup every 5-8 days.  Your tree lawn may suffer some minor damage from leaves over an extended period of time, but it will rebound well in the spring. 

Our friends at the Fire Department would also like to remind residents to not cover fire hydrants.  A hydrant should be unobstructed within three feet.   In an emergency and when seconds count, the failure to locate a hydrant because it is buried by leaves could be devastating.  

Bay Village is a beautiful community in the fall.  We value our trees and the beauty that comes with the foliage.  We appreciate everyone's cooperation in keeping our community safe when the leaves come down. 

The vacuum leaf trucks will pick up leaf piles on tree lawns from mid October through mid-December, weather permitting. If we get a snow storm the leaf trucks will be converted into snowplow trucks. If this occurs the leaves will get picked up once the snow is melted and the trucks can be converted back into leaf collection trucks.

Once leaf pickup is completed in December you can continue to place leaves/yard waste in your blue garbage can for weekly pickup, or you may put them in large plastic garbage bags, or extra garbage cans and those will be picked up with Bulk Pickup. Residents are permitted to put out 4 extra cans OR 6 garbage bags on Bulk Pickup day.
