The past several weeks have brought us high temperatures with dry, windy conditions, increasing the potential for wildfires in Marin County. Residents are being encouraged to take every measure possible to avoid destruction of life and property. Fire Safe Marin advises clearing brush from 30-100 feet of your house if possible. The Town of Fairfax has scheduled five consecutive weekends of chipper days to offer residents options to remove and dispose of vegetation debris from their property. This includes drop off and pick up service for collection of brush and cuttings. Brush should be cut to 4 inches in diameter to fit into the chipper. No POISON OAK, rocks, leaves, or firewood. Palm and bamboo must be kept separate from other vegetation as it will jam the chipper.
To schedule a pick up, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and give your name, address, and phone number 3 days prior to each collection event. Brush should be left in front of your property by 7 a.m. on the Saturday morning of your neighborhood collection day. Piles should not exceed 6 feet across in order to fit into pick up truck.
Thank you for your participation in this very important program!
