GET READY FOR THE CHIPPER!

 

 

Monday, October 2 – North of Main Street

Monday, October 9 – South of Main Street

Please have all your branches and material out to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your designated Monday morning. The Chipper will make only ONE pass through your neighborhood. Branches may be up to 10” in diameter and at least 4’ in length. Stack branches neatly in a long, low pile on the parkway, with the cut end facing the curb. Public Works crews cannot pick up material on private property. The following items cannot be picked up: root balls and stumps; building materials; anything within a box or garbage can; grass; leaves; or any materials other than wooded branch materials. Remember to utilize your Groot yard waste tote throughout the season.

IMPORTANT: Unfortunately the Chipper cannot make passes through each neighborhood after every storm. Please dispose of routine yard waste in the “Green Monster” provided, as the Chipper will only be sent out twice a year (spring and fall) and after emergencies or major storm events. Your cooperation in using the Green Monster helps us to keep our service costs down.
