Only a few weeks remain for free curbside chipping services provided by Vail Fire and Emergency Services before coming to an end for the season. The chipping is available through Thursday, Oct. 15 to assist with defensible space on private property.
To be eligible for the service, residents must call the hotline at 970-477-3509 to make arrangements once the material has been brought to the curb. Please include the location of the pile and contact information. If piles are not called in to the hotline, there is no way to know that chipping services are needed.
Property owners with questions about defensible space or measures they can take to help protect their property from the threat of wildfire are encouraged to call hotline at 970-477-3509 to speak with a wildfire expert. The chipping service will return in the summer of 2021.
Vail Fire would like to thank all participating property owners for taking part in the chipping service this season.
