As of September 7th, the North Tahoe Fire
Residential Chipping Hotline stopped accepting any more requests.
For the next few weeks our chipping
hand crew will be scouring the neighborhoods
remaining debris piles on the streets to officially clean up residents
defensible space vegetation within our District.
This year 2013, North Tahoe Fire is pleased to provide Chipping Service to our residential customers. The program will be subject to some changes. We will have one crew operating in the district. North Tahoe Fire will not be chipping in Alpine Meadows at the present time.
The crew will be chipping Tuesday through Friday. The crew will not be hauling chips away. You can have the chips left in a pile or broadcast back onto your property. The size of your debris pile must not be larger than 6' high by 6' deep by 20' wide.
The North Tahoe Fire Chipping Crew will be spending 30 minutes at each residence that has requested chipping. The debris piles that are stacked neatly with the butt ends together, piled close to the street where the NTF Chip Crew can drive up and access the pile safely, should be chipped entirely at the prescribed size in the time alloted.
WE DO NOT CHIP BOARD LUMBER, PINE CONES, PINE NEEDLES OR BARK. To dispose of these materials contact the Cabin Creek Land Fill (530) 583-7800 between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, Mon-Sat. Yard waste/debris must be delivered to them in bags or in a tarp.
To request Chipping Service please call the new number: 530-584-2322 or 530-583-6911 ext. 601 or request via the North Tahoe Fire "Chipper Request Form" located within this section.
