Posted on Jun 26th, 2015 Comments (0)
Summit County Brush Collection Coming to Silver Shekel Neighborhood August 3-7 and September 21-25, 2015

You can protect your home from wildfire with help from the Summit County Community Chipping Program. Summit County government is helping residents and property owners create defensible space by providing free chipping and disposal for branches, logs and small trees. If you clear woody vegetation from around your home and stack it in a slash pile, Summit County will chip it and haul it away at no cost. More information on the County wide program can be found here.

Collection will occur anytime during August 3 – 7 and September 21 -25, 2015. To be certain not to miss your opportunity, leave your bush pile at the curb on Monday August 3 and / or Monday September 21.
