Free Summit County chipping program

Summit County offers a free program to help residents and property owners create defensible space around their homes by providing curbside chipping and disposal for branches, logs and small trees. If you clear woody vegetation from around your home and stack it in a slash pile, crews will chip it and haul it away at no cost.
