New Curbside Chipping Schedule Beginning July 2022

The Village started providing free curbside chipping services to residents on a trial basis beginning in May 2021.  This program allows residents to place branches by the side of the road on their normal trash day.  Branches are then picked up during that week by Village staff for chipping and removal.  The program has been well-received, and the Village would like to continue providing this service.  To prevent cost overruns, the Village will be right sizing the program.  

Curbside chipping will take place during the week of the 4th Monday of each month, beginning in July of 2022.  Please note that branches will not be chipped except on the scheduled weeks.   Branches must be placed to the side of the curb on your normal trash day.  

Branch pick up and chipping will be conducted during the following weeks:
• Week beginning Monday, July 25th
• Week beginning Monday, August 22nd
• Week beginning Monday, September 26th
• Week beginning Monday, October 24th
• Week beginning Monday, November 28th

Curbside chipping will not be available during winter months, but will resume in April 2023, with the week beginning Monday, April 24th.  As a reminder of the program’s guidelines, residents can place stacked branches between 2 inches and 6 inches in diameter at the curbside for collection and chipping. We ask that branches be stacked, not bundled, and that the cut ends be placed parallel to the curb.  

Twigs and branches smaller than 2 inches must be put with your normal yard waste, in lengths not exceeding 4 feet, and placed to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your normal trash day.  Branches larger than 6 inches in diameter must be disposed of privately.   You may also dispose of branches between 2 – 6 inches in diameter through our normal yard waste service.  However, branches must be cut to 4-foot lengths or less, bundled with twine, weigh no more than 40 pounds, and set at the curb for collection.
