Sign-Up Now for San Anselmo's Free Curbside
Chipper Day Program- July 7-10, 2020
The Town of San Anselmo is pleased to announce that FIRESafe MARIN, with funding from Measure C - Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority, will conduct a free curbside pickup chipper program in most areas in San Anselmo.Each of San Anselmo’s Firewise Sites will have a chipper event. Also, many residents living between Sir Francis Drake Blvd. and Caleta Ave., and between Broadmoor Ave. and our border with Fairfax will also get a chipper day (this area is south of Sleepy Hollow, on the northside of Sir Francis Drake Blvd.).You can see if your address is among those who will receive this service at https://www.chipperday.com/marin If so, you will be able to register for the program.Guidelines:
What CAN go in the chipper?
- Pre-registration is required: Residents sign up directly on our online web portal. https://www.chipperday.com/marin
- Signup is on a first come first served basis. When we have reached our capacity, any additional registrants will be placed on a wait list. Residents on the waitlist will not receive a pickup unless they receive a confirmation email due to a cancellation.
- Residents need to bring their material to their curb for the chipper pick up by 8 am the day we have scheduled for your site. Pickup could be delayed for 1-2 days due to the volume the chippers are processing.
- Piles are limited to 10 feet x 4 feet x 4 feet in size. Piles and portions of piles larger than 10x4x4 will be left for the resident to remove. Firewise sites run the risk of losing their chipper event the following year if there are too many size violations.
What WILL be taken but can't be put in the chipper?
- Tree limbs up to 8” in diameter.
- Shrubs, brush, limbs, woody bushes, pampas grass, scotch broom, cypress, juniper.
- Lay all vegetation the same way with the base of the branch or plant facing the street.
What will NOT be taken for the safety of our crews?
- Roots with rock/gravel/dirt - cut away from the rest of the plant, placed next to pile.
- Palm fronds and bamboo - place next to pile.

- Trash, poison oak, blackberry brambles, firewood, construction materials, lumber, regular yard waste, leaves, lawn clippings.
