We are no longer accepting applications for the chipping program. The chipping service has been unbelievable popular this year! At this time we have booked all our available slots through the scheduled June 30, 2019 work period. The program might return for Fall 2019 and in the Spring of 2020. Please do not pile your cut materials until you have received an email confirmation that you have been accepted into the program.
Who is eligible for the free chipping service?
The City’s no-cost chipping program is open to any residential property east of Mission Blvd from the south side of D Street to the city limits south to Union City. Residents are responsible for the cutting and stacking; our selected contractor will come to the front of your property to do the chipping. Do Not stack your materials for chipping before your request to participate is approved. More specifics for cutting and stacking will be emailed to you after you have been accepted.
