Have you got branches that need to be chipped? The city is providing a FREE chipper, Saturday May 5 at 609 Frederick St SE; we’re the third event of the day, so they’ll probably be at our location around 11:30 a.m. You can start dropping off branches at 6:30 a.m.; go down the alley behind Frederick.  (The pile will be very obvious!) Download the Chipping Event flier for additional information.

What can I chip?

  • Limbs and branches up to 6” in diameter (longer is better).
  • Woody debris from shrubs and plants.

What can’t I chip?

  • Vines like ivy and blackberry.
  • Holly or other thorny material.
  • Juniper.
  • Twisted branches like rhododendron.
  • Limbs with wide forks.
  • Dirt-covered branches.
  • Lumber—we can’t risk damaging the machine with a nail.

DO NOT bring anything that can’t be chipped!
