Sleepy Hollow Fire Protection District and FIRESafe MARIN will have a chipper station located at the end of Butterfield (by the entrance to San Domenico) on the day of the fall creek cleaning, Saturday, October 3, 2015. Clean up your property to create defensible space, or clear debris from your creek to help prevent winter flooding, then bring the vegetation on that day and we will chip it for you! This service is available to Sleepy Hollow residents only.
You are invited! Marin County Fire Department & FIRESafe MARIN are actively working to complete an update to the 2005 Marin County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).
We invite all interested parties to attend one of four CWPP public meetings:
What is a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)?
What can I expect at the public meeting?
SHFPD will hold four scheduled chipper days in June 2015. Chipper days are available to residents of Sleepy Hollow Fire Protection District only. If you live outside of the district, please inquire with Ross Valley Fire Department for potential chipper days at your neighborhood.
Sleepy 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.
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).
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.
