Curbside Branch Chipping

BRANCH CHIPPING POLICY 

DPW Yard Waste Disposal

    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.
