We are happy to announce that FIRESafe MARIN, with Measure C funding from the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority, will conduct a curbside pickup chipper program in many areas throughout Marin from July through Sept 2020.
Preparing for Chipper Day
Signup is on a first come first served basis. When we have reached our capacity, any additional registrants will be placed on a wait list. Residents on the wait list will not receive a pickup unless they receive a confirmation email due to a cancellation.
Pickup may be delayed for 1-2 days due to volume.
MATERIAL IN EXCESS OF 10'x4'x4' WILL NOT BE PICKED UP YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DISPOSAL OF EXCESS MATERIAL.
PLACE YOUR 10'x4'x4' PILE ON THE CURB BY 8AM ON PICKUP DAY.
Q: What CAN go in the chipper?
Tree limbs up to 8” in diameter.
Shrubs, brush, limbs, woody bushes, pampas grass, scotch broom, cypress, juniper, etc.

Roots with rock/gravel/dirt - cut away from the rest of the plant, placed next to pile
Palm fronds and bamboo - place next to pile
Q: What will NOT be taken for the safety of our crews?
Trash, poison oak, blackberry brambles, firewood, construction materials, lumber, regular yard waste, leaves, lawn clippings
Lay all vegetation in your 10'x4'x4' pile the same way with the base of the branch or plant facing toward the street (so that it can be easily picked up and placed in the chipper) at your curb by 8am on the day of your chipper event.
