Chipping Program


The Colorado Springs Fire Department works in stewardship with over 100 neighborhoods to assist residents with disposal of tree branches and hazardous vegetation via our neighborhood chipping program. 

Chipping occurs during a predetermined week for each neighborhood. 

Chipping Guidelines

  • Individual homeowners must register to participate
  • All chipping dates are the "week of"
  • Material must be stacked curbside by 8:00AM Monday morning and will be picked up by the end of the week
  • Incorrectly stacked piles WILL NOT BE PICKED UP

(refer to the chipping flier at the bottom of the page for pile stacking guidelines)
