Chipping Program

On the 2nd Saturday of each month, the City of Fairfield Parks and Recreation Department chips limbs and other woody brush on Groh Lane near Waterworks Park. For Fairfield residents who have a means of transporting their limbs, this is an excellent method of disposal that need not be scheduled in advance. The following guidelines apply to this program:

  • Come early. Parks Department crews are available from 8 a.m. until 12 noon on the 2nd Saturday of each month (excluding January and February) to chip brush hauled to the chipping location by residents. The line of those waiting to use this service can be long.
  • Know the limits. Parks crews can chip limbs up to 4 inches in diameter. Leave limbs as long as possible for the safety of the equipment operator. Do not bring leaves or grass clippings as these will not be accepted.
  • Be prepared. Residents sometimes want the chippings from their limbs to use for various landscaping purposes. If you do want the chips, remember to bring suitable containers for hauling them.
  • Remember your proof of Fairfield residence, such proof is required in order to take advantage of this program.
