Chipping of limbs and branches is one of the most appreciated town services.  Here are a few guidelines:

  • Chipping begins the Monday of the first full week of the month.
  • Please consider the quantity of brush you leave.  If you have a tree removal service or a landscaper, they should remove the brush.
  • Do not mix loose materials with branches and limbs.
  • Please consider putting loose materials (leaves, etc.) in waste cans or paper bags.  We would like to avoid putting greenery inside plastic bags.
  • We will not take limbs more than 6 inches in diameter.
  • Please place the cut ends toward the street.
  • Cut the length down to no more than 6-8 feet.  This is a safety precaution with the chipper.
  • We will not remove any bag that can weigh more than 40 pounds.

It is the sole discretion of the Public Works employees performing the service if they remove the brush; it may be too large a pile, materials other than the brush could be in a pile, the bags may weigh too much, or for any reason, he or she deems necessary.
