Curbside Branch Chipping

UPDATED 2017 - RESIDENTS PLEASE READ UPDATED CHIPPING POLICY!

    The Village chipping crew begins touring the Village annually starting mid April and continuing every Monday through October (no chipping holiday weeks).

Rules & Regulations:

  • Stack branches (3-inch maximum diameter) neatly on the parkway (area between the sidewalk and curb), with the cut ends of branches facing the street by 6:30 a.m. on Monday mornings.
  • Do not place branches on the sidewalk or street where they would interfere with pedestrians or vehicle traffic.
  • Do not place branches at curbside sooner than the immediate preceding weekend. We Do not chip tree/bush stumps.
  • No Compost
  • The chipping crew is limited to 20 minutes per address, after which a fee is charged for each additional 20 minute at the property owner's request (see Municipal Code/Fees Enumerated). The owner will be billed for the additional time beyond the first 20 minutes.
  • The crew will make only one pass per side of the street per chipping event.
  • Larger limbs, stumps, and/or tree removals are the responsibility of the homeowner and will not be collected or chipped.
Due to the curbside chipping, the Village has a surplus of wood chips available to residents. Residents can pick up wood chips at the DPW yard waste site at 649 S Main Street. You must bring your own container and shovel or pitch fork - we do not provide tools. The Village DPW will also deliver wood chips, however, the resident must accept a full truck load (3-5 yards) and we will not come back for unused wood chips. To arrange delivery, call the DPW at 284-0545.


There is NO branch/brush drop-off accepted at the compost site.
