Residential Limb Chipping
The Public Works Department will be providing free limb chipping services for single family residences in the City twice per year. Limbs must be at the curb line by the Sunday evening prior to the designated collection date of service for your ward, and no earlier than five days before that date. Public Works crews will make one pass through each ward beginning at 7:00 a.m. on the date of service. Collection work will continue until one pass is completed, which may take more than one day.

• Tree limbs must be 4' to 12' in length (the longer length preferred) and be no larger than
6" in diameter at the base of the cut. The brush pile shall not be over 4’ in height at the
street edge or over 30’ in length along the street edge. Each home may put out only one
pile of brush.
• Tree limbs must be placed along the curb line of your property, neatly stacked, with the
cut ends toward the street. If you have a sidewalk in front of your home, the tree limbs
must be stacked behind the sidewalk. Brush must be stacked in this manner or it will not
be taken. Limbs may not be stacked on the island of a cul-de-sac; limbs stacked in this
manner will not be chipped.
• No limbs shorter than 4’ in length, bundled limbs, trash, firewood, stumps, root balls,
vines, thorny material, lumber, grass or detached leaves will be chipped or collected.
• These program conditions will be strictly enforced.
The wood chips will be converted to mulch suitable for landscaping and will be stockpiled at
Seibert Park. The mulch, when available, is for pick up and use by all residents at no charge.
Commercial use of this mulch is not allowed.
