Chipper crews will dispose of up to 5 cubic yards of cut vegetation at no cost (approx 4'x4'x8', stacked).  Larger quantities must be pre-approved.

NEW! CHIPPER ZONES

b2ap3_thumbnail_Screen-Shot-2015-05-22-at-12.49.18-PM.pngSleepy Hollow is now divided into 4 chipper zones.  Please locate your home's zone to determine the correct date for chipping.   You must register online or our crews will not dispose of material at your address.  Click here to view the "chipper zone" map and determine the date for chipping on your street.

  • Zone 1: June 13
  • Zone 2: June 14
  • Zone 3: June 20
  • Zone 4: June 21

2. CREATE YOUR DEFENSIBLE SPACE

Please review the  booklet, “Living With Fire in Sleepy Hollow.”  All Sleepy Hollow residents received a printed copy by mail in 2014, and a PDF version is available for download here.  It contains valuable information regarding wildfire risk, defensible space, and firescaping.   Additional information on creating Defensible Space is available at www.firesafemarin.org. The law requires that all property owners remove the flammable vegetation on your property to create a defensible space of at least 100 feet (PRC 4291).

3. STACK MATERIAL CURBSIDE

  1. CHIPPER CREWS WILL DISPOSE OF UP TO 5 CUBIC YARDS OF CUT VEGETATION AT NO COST (APPROXIMATELY 4'X4'X8', STACKED).  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
  2. Grass, loose leaves, and soft plants should be disposed of in green cans.  The chipper can only dispose of limbs, branches, and woody material.
  3. Stack materials curbside, with cut ends facing the road to allow crews to work more efficiently.
  4. No material should be greater than 6” in diameter.
  5. Material should be freshly cut. "Green" chips are better than old, dry vegetation and cause less wear to the equipment.
  6. All vegetative material should be free of rocks, dirt and other foreign material that could damage the equipment. No lumber, fencing, or other materials may be chipped.
  7. Crews may leave materials that exceed the quantity or specifications described.
  8. Property owners may be asked to sign a record of the location and hours that were spent cutting the materials to be chipped. This helps us track "volunteer" time for our grant, and makes it more likely that we'll be able to offer this service in the future.

4. CHIPPER DAY PICKUP

Go to our website and fill out the simple online form so that we know you have material for pickup.  On June 13 (Zone 1), June 14 (Zone 2), June 20 (Zone 3), June 21 (Zone 4)  our “Youth2Work” team will come by your property, pick up your neatly stacked materials, run them through a wood chipper, and then they will be taken to a composting facility.  There is no charge for this service.
