Summit County Chipping Program Heads to Frisco July 28 through August 1

Starting on July 28 running through August 1 the Summit County Chipping Program will be in Frisco.  This program can help residents to protect their homes from wildfire with help from the Summit County Chipping Program. Summit County government and Summit County Wildfire Council are helping residents and property owners create defensible space by providing free chipping and disposal for branches, logs and small trees. If residents clear woody vegetation from around their homes and stack it in a slash pile, we’ll chip it and haul it away at no cost.

Materials Guidelines

Accepted materials include trees, logs and branches up to 9 inches in diameter, free of nails and wire. The following restrictions apply:

  • No construction or building materials
  • No treated lumber, fence posts or signs
  • No shrubs, root wads, stumps, dirt or rocks
  • No grass clippings, trash, weeds or bags of leaves.

Pile Guidelines

Piles must be stacked by 8 a.m. on the Monday of your neighborhood’s designated chipping week (see schedule below).

    • Stack piles neatly (no bags), with large ends facing the road.
    • Place piles within 5 feet of the roadway, but not touching the road or in drainage ditches.
    • Maximum pile size is 5 feet high, by 5 feet deep, by 5 feet wide. There is no limit on the number of piles you may put out.
    • If you want to keep your chips, tie a piece of red yarn or flagging in a prominent spot on the pile.
    • Do not combine piles with neighbors or place piles in other neighborhoods.
    • After crews have removed your pile, clear away any remaining branches, needles and debris.
