Limb Chipping

*The 2019 Limb Chipping Program is scheduled to begin the week of March 18th and will continue through mid-October.
Preparing your limbs for chipping: Limb chipping service is provided by the Public Works Department in spring, summer and fall for single-family residences. Below are some program guidelines:
  • Place your limbs at the curb for chipping and not in the street.
  • Limbs less than 3' long, less than 0.5" in diameter, or larger than 3" diameter cannot be chipped, but may be bundled or bagged for collection by Republic Services on your trash day.
  • The city does not pick up limbs from vacant lots or common ground areas.
  • Piles containing leaves, evergreens, vines, bamboo, root balls or thorns will not be picked up.
  • Large limb piles generated by contractors completing major tree trimming, tree removals, or lot clearing are not eligible for the program.
  • There is a 15 minute maximum time limit per residence. This is required in order to provide service to all residences in a timely manner.
