Branch chipping

Service and Streets/BTA


Disposing of branches after branch chipping week is over

If for any reason you miss branch chipping week, branches may be bundled in less than 4′ lengths and weighing no more than 35 lbs and placed curbside for your regular refuse pick up. The refuse company will also pick up root balls from bushes and shrubbery if they are no heavier than 35 lbs.

Another option, if you miss the branch chipping week and do not wish to bundle your branches for regular refuse pickup, would be to take your branches to the Medina County Solid Waste Facility located at 8700 Lake Road, Seville. For more information call 330-769-0289 or visit their website at .

During branch chipping week…

Please have your tree branches curbside by 7:00 am on the same day as your regular scheduled refuse pick up. We will attempt to follow the regular refuse schedule but because it is not possible to predict the time and quantity of branches to be chipped we cannot guarantee the exact day we will be at your property.

In order to keep our Service Crew safe please follow the branch chipping regulations listed below:

  • Tree branches should be left full length for ease when possible.
  • Tree branches should be placed cut side to the curb.
  • Tree branches should be free of wire or rope and must not be tied.
  • Tree branches cannot be over 6″ in diameter.
  • Tree branches less than 3′ in length must be bundled for your regular refuse pick up.

The Service Department will be making one pass thru the City and will not return to a particular street after they have concluded branch chipping on that street.

When is branch chipping?

Branch chipping is conducted twice a year (spring and fall) on all public streets in the City of Brunswick.

To find out when it will occur, consult the list of upcoming service events on the Service and Streets section’s front page.
