Community Freecycle Yard Sale is May 12


Sign up now - www.bexley.org/yard-sale!

On May 12th, Bexley will be holding our fourth annual Community Yard Sale & Freecycle Weekend. Hosting yard sales in the front yard and placing items for pickup at the curb is not typically allowed per Bexley's Codified Ordinances. This once-a-year exception is provided in order to encourage environmentally friendly reuse and recycling of household items. 

The Community Yard Sale will run from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm. Any resident may host a yard sale, provided they register with City Hall using the online form, or by calling (614) 559-4200, or by stopping into City Hall and filling out a form. Registration is free! Yard sales may be held in the front yard for this one day only, but may not be held on or in front of the sidewalk or in the street.

The Community Freecycle event will run from 1:00 - 5:00 pm. During these hours, residents may place items that are unwanted between the sidewalk and the curb. Items that do not fit in this area may be placed directly behind the sidewalk (between the sidewalk and the house). Items or groupings of items must be clearly marked as free for the taking, and must be marked "Freecycle Day." Want to save some time?  Download this "Freecycle Day" printout by clicking here!  Any items not taken by 4:00 pm on Sunday must be removed from the front yard and disposed of or recycled via other means.

South Roosevelt Avenue Reconstruction Starts This Week



The reconstruction of South Roosevelt Avenue from Main Street to Broad Street is scheduled to begin the week of March 19th and will last approximately 5 months. The project will begin at Broad and Roosevelt moving south, doing one block at a time. During this time, there will be parking restrictions posted on the street during working hours (7:00am to 6:00pm) on weekdays.  We will maintain access to residences to the extent feasible but there will be occasions when travel through S. Roosevelt Avenue or Powell Avenue or Dale Avenue will not be accessible, particularly during water main installation and paving. This is usually limited to the area where the crews are working and access may be available by going around the block from the opposite direction. This project is made possible thanks to a combination grant and zero-interest loan from the Ohio Public Works Commission.
