Spring & Fall Brush Chipping Program
In partnership with the City of Maple Ridge, Ridge Meadows Recycling Society administers the Spring & Fall Brush Chipping Program for Maple Ridge residents.
No pre-booking is necessary, simply place branches at the roadside adjacent to your property by the set-out deadline for your area.
Spring (starts after Easter long weekend):
Tues, April 18 for Maple Ridge residents who live WEST of 224th St.
Mon, May 1 for Maple Ridge residents who live EAST of 224th St
Fall (starts after Thanksgiving long weekend):
Tues, October 10 for Maple Ridge residents who live WEST of 224th St.
Mon, October 23 for Maple Ridge residents who live EAST of 224th St
NOTE: All brush MUST be set out by the deadlines to be picked up. Chipping in each area will take up to two weeks to complete. The number of days spent on each area depends on the amount of brush set out and the number of residents using the program.
The program includes pick up and disposal of tree & shrub branches up to a total volume of 3 cubic meters (1 meter x 1 meter x 3 meters, roughly 3 feet x 3 feet x 9 feet – chippers are instructed to spend no more than 20 minutes at each household). Branches may be up to 6 inches in diameter. No construction waste, building materials, stumps, leaves, branches with thorns (eg. rose bushes, blackberries), vines (including willow branches), bamboo, root balls, or household waste will be permitted.
Please note: items placed at the curb not covered by the program or excess volume of material will not be picked up. The purpose of this program is to provide an alternative to burning this material.
NO LATE SET-OUTS OR OVERSIZED PILES WILL BE ACCEPTED!
