Chipper Days are back in 2022!
The Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA) will once again sponsor the Curbside Chipper Day Program (also known as “Chipper Days”) in 2022. The Program will run from May 16 – October 28, 2022, and each neighborhood will have two separate chipper events.
As Marin residents have mentioned in the past, the challenge in maintaining a fire-resistant property is not cutting the low-hanging branches or gathering the dead plants. The challenge is determining how to dispose of this hazardous vegetation once all the work is done. The Curbside Chipper Program addresses this challenge by providing residents with two opportunities every year to have a portion of their vegetation removed at no cost quickly and easily.
If you are interested in participating, please visit https://www.chipperday.com/marin to review program rules/guidelines and to make a reservation.
Reservations are required to participate. You can make a reservation starting on March 15th by visiting the website and inserting your address into the search field.
Our program is in high demand. If you have a reservation and no longer wish to participate, please cancel your reservation as soon as possible but no later than Wednesday of the week preceding your event. Failing to cancel in a timely manner costs the county money and prevents us from giving your reservation to someone on the waitlist. Thank you for your cooperation!
In order for Chipper Days to succeed, it is imperative that all participants abide by the rules and guidelines of the program. Participants who fail to abide by the Program rules and guidelines run the risk of being prohibited from taking part in future Chipper Day events.
New for the 2022 season
Based on participant feedback, the pile size limit in 2022 has been increased to 20 feet x 4 feet x 4 feet. Please note that any portion of a pile greater than 20’x4’x4’ may be left behind by our crew and will become the resident’s responsibility to remove.
To participate in the program, you MUST book a reservation no later than the Wednesday preceding the week of your neighborhood’s scheduled service.
