We are no longer accepting chipping applications from residents in the Hayward Hills, Fairview and Five Canyons who are interested in participating in our Fall No-Cost Residential Chipping and Assistance Program. Residential properties east of Mission Boulevard and south of D Street to the border of Union City are areas considered to be at relatively high risk of fire due to proximity to open spaces with grassland and brush. Please check back again Spring 2022.
When the application process is open residents will click on a provided link to submitt their interest in participating. Participants will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents are responsible for cutting and stacking the tree limbs and branches—and a contractor hired by the City will come to the front of each property to do the chipping.
Do Not stack your materials for chipping until you have been given your scheduled chipping date.
Grant funding may be available to help senior, disabled, or low-income residents with expenses associated with cutting, trimming, and stacking limbs and branches through our Residential Assistance Program (RAP). To determine if you or someone you know is eligible for assistance, please email FiresafeHFD@hayward-ca.gov and include your full name, address, and contact information. An application will be emailed to you to be completed and returned by email.
