The Colorado Springs Fire Department has announced its 2022 Neighborhood Chipping Program dates. In Peregrine, we are fortunate to have two events scheduled again for this year. The dates are: – Chipping Event #1 – May 23 – June 5 – Chipping Event #2 – Oct. 10 – Oct. 23 New this year, CSFD has restructured the chipping schedule to be in two-week blocks. Chipping will occur during the two weeks following the listed date. This means that instead of getting all of the chipping done in a single week, they will now be doing it over a two-week period. For example, for the first chipping event you will need to have your piles out by 8 a.m. on Monday, May 23 and chipping will occur anytime between May 23 – June 5. Reminders:
- Online registration for our Neighborhood Chipping Program is now active. You can register at any time for either event.
- Please keep in mind that you must sign-up if you want your piles chipped. If you do not sign-up, your piles will not be chipped by CSFD. They have been somewhat lenient on this process in the past but due to the expansion of this program, they are no longer allowed to pick up piles that have not been registered appropriately.
- Piles need to be within 5’ of the road, stacked in 5’x5’x5’ dimensions with cut ends facing the road. You can do as many piles as you want, but you can’t do a single, 20’ long pile of slash. CSFD will not chip that.
Rules and guidelines are all available on the CSFD Chipping Flyer. Further details will be provided, as available.
