Curbside Palm Frond & Arundo Chipping Programs Introduced by Greater Alpine Fire Safe Council!

The Greater Alpine Fire Safe Council is introducing two new programs: A curbside palm frond and Arundo chipping program.


Dear Chipping Fans,

For years we have been unable to chip palm fronds and Arundo but in 2018 all that changed!!  Now, courtesy of Supervisor Dianne Jacob, we have a brand new Eliet Pro Cross Country Chipper that solves that problem and we are starting a pilot Curbside Palm Frond & Arundo Chipping Program!  We will start by offering this program once per year to customers in all our zones, following the schedule below:

Zone 1, 2, 3, 4: September 3 – 7, 2018
Zone 5, 6, 7: November 12 – 16, 2018               

We will advertise these events at the beginning of each quarter for chipping two months later.  We will send you a reminder by email then and another when on-line registration opens for your Zone, which will follow the current Curbside Chipping process.

Additional Rules

You must follow the regular Curbside Chipping Rules but in addition, because of the special nature of palm fronds and Arundo, your green cut piles must dry out for at least 2 but no more than 4 weeks before the event. When stacking your piles, make sure the stems face the chipper, and are located where the chips may be piled.  The Eliet chipper does not broadcast chips!

And the good news is that this is a No Cost Service!
