VILLAGE OF MAYVILLE Brush Chipping
A friendly reminder on how to properly prepare your brush for chipping.
The Village of Mayville’s Dept of Public Works will start picking up brush on Monday April 3rd through the last week in October. All brush should be placed by the road no later than 7:30 am on Monday’s
The DPW will pick up piles of brush up to four (4) feet wide and four (4) feet high by six (6) feet long. All piles of brush must contain branches less than 4 inches in diameter. When branches are placed at the curb, place the cut end toward the road edge and stack neatly. This will help speed up the chipping process. The Village will not pick up whole trees or large amounts of brush. You may want to consider a private contractor to remove trees or larger piles.
Chipping is for limbs, and any small debris lying on the ground after pick up is the responsibility of the homeowner or tenant.
If your brush was not picked up today, it was because of one or more of the following reasons. Please take note of the problem and correct it for the next pick up. THANK YOU.
Your pile of brush was larger than 4x4x6. Only that amount was taken. Longer limbs and branches are preferred, but should not be longer that one man can reasonably lift Your branches were not placed neatly at the curb with the cut edges toward the road. You had one or more stumps or roots that will not go through the chipper. You placed small, spindly trimmings or clippings that will not go through the chipper. You had one or more branches that were twisted and gnarled or had a large “V” fork in them and would not go through the chipper.
