Brush Chipping: The village service department will be picking up brush the first Wednesday of each month from April through November. The following is what is allowed:
>Brush Chipping is for disposal of small amounts of brush/branches that are removed by residents for normal maintenance and upkeep of property.
>Total brush/branches chipping time shall be limited to a maximum of 15 minutes at any residence. Any remaining material must be removed within 48 hours after the chipping date.
>The maximum size of the brush/branches shall not exceed 6" in diameter, placed at the curb with the butt end towards the street and perpendicular to the curb, free of string, wire, rope or any materials.
>Piles may not exceed 4 feet in height.
>Please do not place brush/branches at the curb any earlier than 3 days prior to pick up.
>Once the service crew has passed a property they will not return to chip, so please make sure your brush/branches are out prior to the day of chipping.
