The Carmel Highlands Fire Protection District's Chipper Days are here again!
This fuel reduction program is free to Carmel Highlands residents.
Residents living in the Carmel Highlands FPD are invited to participate in the 2020 Residential Chipper Program. The Chipper Program is funded by the Carmel Highlands FPD to assist with the disposal of hazardous fuels. Property owners who remove vegetative material from their property to reduce the wildland fire hazard can have the material chipped and disposed of at no cost. The chipped material will be removed from the site. Alternately, the chips may be left on site at the request of the property owner. The chipping will begin on the North end of the fire district and progress to the South. Due to the drought and the popularity of the program, the chipping contractor is processing large volumes of material and it may take several days to reach each neighborhood. No sign up necessary. No appointments will be made and no deviation from the planned route will occur. Your cooperation and patience is appreciated.
Requirements to participate in the program:
All cut limbs must be stacked (no higher than 4 feet) along the roadside, no later than 8:00 am
Stacked neatly with the butt end perpendicular to the road.
All limbs/branches/brush must be no more than 6 inches in diameter and may be any length.
All material to be chipped must be clear of metal objects (no nails or other objects in the wood).
No poison oak.

And pile it on they did
And they took it!
