Storm Debris

This Thursday, July 27th, Public Works will be out with the chipper, picking up storm debris. Regular chipping will resume on October 5th. Here are some guidelines to consider:

Limbs should be placed at the curb with the cut ends toward the street; limbs should lay next to and on top of each other in a neat pile, not crisscrossed. This facilitates Public Works being able to pull out one limb at a time to feed the chipper. The only thing that can be inserted into the chipper are tree limbs and plant matter, any foreign body mixed in with the limbs can be dangerous to the workers, the and can cause damage to the equipment. Pieces of fence wire, metal stakes, lumber, railroad ties, and landscaping timbers are a few examples of foreign objects. Certain soft vines and thorned plants might be rejected due to safety and fouling of the equipment.
