 About the Fire Fuel Chipper and Debris Bin Program

The Fire Fuel Chipper and Debris Bin Program is part of the city’s Vegetation Management Program. This program, which began in the spring of 1993, provides a brush chipping service and debris bins to Berkeley residents that live in the designated areas. It is funded by a surcharge which is paid by the property owners in those areas.

The program is a household cleanup service. It is intended to assist residents in maintaining a defensible area around structures by lessening the amount of flammable vegetation on their property. Debris resulting from general commercial tree service operations will not be picked up.

The Urban Forestry Unit administers the Fire Fuel Chipper Program; the Public Works Department administers the Fire Fuel Debris Bin Program.
