No Cost chipping services for Amador County residents
The Amador Resource Conservation District (ARCD) is implementing a residential fuels Roadside Chipping program, a Neighborhood Chipping program, and Community Chipping events to help encourage continued vegetation maintenance in the county. The ARCD will administer the chipping services program through a grant awarded by the California Fire Safe Council. This chipping program is open to all Amador County residents that first pile vegetative slash along roadsides or driveways, then submit a request for chipping service (see below, but please review all requirements first). The ARCD will send an industrial chipper and crew to the site to process the roadside slash. The program will provide the community the ability to process vegetative debris, or residents can bring their green waste to one of the scheduled Community Chipping events throughout the county.
Two Options for assistance
Community Chipping EVENTs
Amador RCD will be hosting Community Chipping events throughout Amador County during 2022. Landowners will bring material to be chipped to scheduled locations. This program is open to Amador County residents only. Click the Community Chipping Events link below
for more information.
Roadside and Neighborhood Chipping is available for residents of Amador County. Once vegetation is cut and piled by the landowner, the landowner should submit an application for Roadside Chipping. Click the Roadside Chipping link below for more information.
Create defensible space by clearing brush 100’ from buildings (or to property line) and 20′ from driveways. Please refer to the CAL FIRE pamphlet (click here to download a copy) for further guidance on creating defensible space.
