2015 FREE Brush Chipping Program for Richfield Township Residents
TO HELP US HELP YOU .... Please click here to see our Flyer and Guidelines for the program. The next and last week is October 5, 2015.
The Brush Chipping Program is being offered to all Richfield Township Residents again this year. This program is only for existing residences and commercial clearing is not allowed. Please see our ad in the April 2015 Richfield Times Magazine since it will only appear once during the program year.
Brush needs to be at the road near the driveway by 7:00 a.m. on Monday of the Chipping Week. Piles may not be chipped if they are too difficult or unsafe to remove. To accomodate all Township chipping, the Service Department crew will take only 30 minutes at each location.
Residents please note, due to the August 19, 2014 Service Department fire the chipping equipment was a total loss and to be able to continue to offer this program the equipment needs to be rented. Because of the high demand of this equipment, it may limit the flexibility of the Service Department has they administer the program due to the rental agreement.
