CHIPPER SERVICE AND YARD WASTE: The Chipper Service will begin on Monday, April 4. The chipper truck starts on the west end of town and works its way through to the east end of town. The first time out in the spring typically takes a little longer for the chipper to pick up all the branches that have accumulated over the winter months. Place branches in the parkway in front of your house with the stub end facing the street. Small branches can be placed into yard waste cans or bags to be removed by the garbage service, which will start on Thursday, April 7.
