The Township currently offers branch chipping free of charge to residential properties. A property must, however, have a house on it to receive this service. The Service Department collects and chips branches beginning during the second full week of each month, from April through October. For 2013 these dates will be during the weeks beginning on Monday April 8, Monday May 13, Monday June 10, Monday July 8, Monday August 12, Monday September 9, and Tuesday October 14 (delayed due to Columbus Day). Collected and chipped materials are stockpiled for use on public properties. No application is necessary, but residents are asked to follow a few simple guidelines to help keep this service cost-effective and efficient for all, as follows:
Branches must be out no later than 7:30 AM on Monday of the week of collection, in order to guarantee collection in that round.
Branches should be placed on the tree lawn (grass area within 10 feet of the pavement edge) in neatly stacked piles.
Where a ditch exists along the pavement edge, branches should be placed beside, rather than in, the ditch.
Piles should be free of stumps, grass clippings and other yard waste, briars, vines, and anything with thorns.
Branches should be not longer than four feet and not greater than 10 inches in diameter.
The Service Department will pick up only those materials that conform to the above guidelines.
If you have any questions about this Program, please call Township Hall at (330) 425-4497.
