Tree Trimmings Please follow the guidelines below for Chipper
- The chipper service is only for residents who trim their own trees.
- Complete tree removal or debris left by contractors will NOT be collected.
- Branches over four (4') feet long and at least two (2") inches thick (not to exceed 4" thick) must be placed at the curb with the cut ends facing one direction. Do not bundle the branches.
NOTE: The chipper will not grind roots of any kind. Logs, roots (free of dirt), stumps and untreated wood should be placed in paper yard waste bags (50-pound limit) and set out for compost/yard waste pickup.
