The City's 2022 Program runs April-November. Branch Chipping begins on the first Monday of each month.
The Crews make 1 complete pass through the City each month. We ask that you pile the branches parallel to the roadway (cut ends not facing the road) to assist our crews in their collection efforts as this increases efficiency and worker safety as they operate the chipping equipment. Branches must be no longer than 10 inches in diameter.
NOTE - Branches can also be cut to 4' lengths or less and bundled to put out next to your trash and recycling carts for Waste Management to remove on Tuesdays throughout the season as an alternative to the monthly chipping program by the city's chipping crews.
Leaf Pick-up begins Mid-October and runs continuously through December or until the crews switch to plowing snow. The Service Department asks that all leaves be raked to the tree lawn and that piles be free of twigs, grass clippings, and other garden materials. Note that raking of leaves to cul-de-sac islands or into the street is not permitted.
The Service Department is responsible for clearing the streets of snow and ice. Plowing of the neighborhood streets begins after all major roadways have been cleared.
Per City Ordinance, public sidewalks that abut your property are the homeowner’s responsibility to clear, and snow & ice removed from your driveway or sidewalk should not be pushed into the street or neighboring properties.
Senior snow plowing service is available for a nominal fee to residents 65 years of age or older. Contact the Senior Center for program details and registration information at 330-963-8722.
