FREE Curbside Palm Frond & Arundo Chipping Year End Dates: November 12-16, 2018

Pilot Curbside Palm Frond and Arundo Chipping Program

Dear Chipping Fans,

As we noted several months ago 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 have started a pilot Curbside Palm Frond & Arundo Chipping Program!

In order to finish out this year our final event will take place in:           

Zone 5 & 7               November 12 – 16, 2018

This is your reminder that on-line registration opens for your Zones Monday, Oct. 22.  This event will follow the current Curbside Chipping process.

The news for 2019 is even better – we will offer this service twice per year to customers in all our zones!  I have attached the full Curbside Chipping Schedule for 2019 for your delight.

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, we have found that is works better to have the stems face away from the chipper, but they should still be located where the chips may be piled.  The Eliet chipper cannot broadcast chips over a great distance!

And the good news is that this is a No Cost Service! For more info please email
