The Town of Fairfax and FIRESafe MARIN will host community chipper days in August and September. Fairfax residents may drop off vegetation material for free disposal to help reduce the threat of wildfire.
Jolly Hill neighborhood
Deer Park neighborhood
Instructions for chipping:
The intent of these chipper days is to remove vegetation "fuel" to reduce wildfire hazards near homes in Fairfax. Please follow instructions at www.firesafemarin.org to create Defensible Space, then bring us your cut vegetation for free disposal!
To prepare for chipper day, please cut your brush to 4 inches in diameter. You may bring brush, bay tree saplings, scotch broom, branches and other yard trimmings. Please, no grass, rocks or fire wood. Brush will be chipped on site and taken for recycling to Marin Resource Recovery Center. Please do your part to clear your property and provide Defensible Space to protect yourself and your family from wildfire danger.
Funding is provided by FIRESafe MARIN and PG&E though a community fuel reduction and fire prevention grant.
