Brush Chipping

Town of Campbell Curbside Brush Chipping Guidelines

These guidelines have been prepared in order to efficiently and effectively provide brush chipping services to the residents of the Town of Campbell. This program is intended for the disposal of small amounts of limbs/branches that are removed by residents for normal maintenance and upkeep only. Chipping will be done for the residents at a given address. No brush can be brought in from other locations.

The Town will not pick up brush from lot clearing activities or from the removal of trees or bushes. Contractor – cleared brush or trees will NOT be picked up whether FREE or PAID FOR. It is the contractor’s or
resident’s responsibility to dispose of this . It can be transported to the county landfill, or check the Yellow Pages under Tree Service. The crew will spend up to 10 minutes at each residence. Any remaining
brush should be kept in your yard until the next pickup date. Brush should not be put out to the curb until 3 days prior to your pickup date.

The maintenance crew will answer any questions you may have while they are at your residence. If you are unable to speak with the crew, please call the maintenance department with any questions at 779-9805.

  • Schedule: Brush chipping will start the first Monday of the month for areas NORTH of I-90 and the second Monday of the month for areas SOUTH of I-90 from April to October. Chipping will continue throughout the week until completed. Town crews will only go by each residence ONE time each month.
  • All brush must be curbside by 7 a.m. on the day of your scheduled chipping. The Town will not pickup brush in alleys. Town crews will not cross or enter private property to pick up brush. Brush that is not curbside by 7 a.m. will not be picked up until the next pickup date. In order to maintain the schedule, brush crews WILL NOT return for special pickups. Christmas trees will be picked up starting the day after Christmas and ending the second week of January.
  • Piling brush: These guidelines must be followed. If brush piles do not meet these guidelines, the brush/limbs will not be collected until they do meet the guidelines. Pile brush with the cut end toward the road, all in the same direction, and pile as loosely as possible so that brush is easy to unpile. Branches or limbs over 6” in diameter will not be accepted. The brush should be as long as possible, yet easy to handle. One of the biggest problems crews have is people cutting large branches into small pieces. The crew has a saw and will make cuts if needed. Pile brush away from mailboxes, telephone poles, etc. Stumps, root balls, roots, rocks, rubbish, construction material, dimensional lumber, metal, or yard waste WILL NOT be collected.
  • Brush due to major storm damage: If there is major storm damage, the Town will chip brush from storm-damaged trees. The Town will determine and announce emergency storm-related brush collections.
