Chipping Program Returns to Atascadero!
CHIPPING PROGRAM REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
The San Luis Obispo County Fire Safe Council has awarded Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services grant funds for hazardous fuel reduction for 2024. This program, referred to as chipping, will be offered to those properties in the Wildland Urban Interface fire area map within City limits. Registration begins on February 1, 2024, and chipping will begin on March 1, 2024. The City of Atascadero has contracted with Hansen Bro’s Custom Farming to complete chipping services and representatives will provide ID upon request. Please contact the Chipping Program Coordinator with any questions.

ALL MATERIAL MUST BE PILED NEAR THE ROAD OR DRIVEWAY & BE EASILY ACCESSIBLE!
Please stack branches with the ends facing the same direction. Branch diameter can be up to 5" round with the length not to exceed 15 ft. Please keep piles free of household trash, processed lumber, poison oak, oleander and avoid vine type vegetation as this may jam the chipper. The photos below demonstrate the correct way to stack your branches.
If you have questions, please contact Kelly Arebalo, Administrative Assistant, at (805) 470-3300.
