The chipping of brush/branches is for the general yard maintenance of trimming on a residential property. All branches should be a minimum of 4 ft. in length, neatly stacked with butt ends facing the roadway no more than 3 ft. high.
The program is not meant for clearing of lots. If a contractor is hired, they are to dispose of and remove all brush/branches, the HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT WILL NOT PICK UP FOR THE CONTRACTOR.
We do not pick up root balls or wood cut exceeding 6 inches.
Please understand that chipping is an extremely hazardous service that the highway department provides and appreciates your cooperation. We do not pick up decorative grasses, plants with vines or weeds. If we see poison ivy or poison oak we will not pick up. It is the resident’s responsibility to dispose of the weed.
We assign two summer crews for pick up 5 days per week from May 15 thru August 31 each year.
Limited pick ups from September 1st thru October 15th, at this time we begin to turn the trucks over for the Winter Salting/Plowing season.
Exceptions to this will be made when we experience ice/sleet and high wind/rain events.
