|Summit County Brush Collection Coming to Silver Shekel Neighborhood September 21-25, 2015|
Monday, September 21st to Friday, September 25th|
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 September 21 -25, 2015. To be certain not to miss your opportunity, leave your bush pile at the curb on Monday September 21.
Accepted materials include trees, logs and branches up to 9 inches in diameter, free of nails and wire. The following restrictions apply:
- No willow branches
- No construction or building materials
