Brush Chipping Program

The City of Fenton offers a residential brush chipping and removal program that runs from May 1st through September 30th. This program allows residential properties to place their brush next to the street and the Department of Public Works (DPW) will chip and haul away the material. Brush pickup is limited to one collection per year with a quantity limitation of material no larger than 12 inches in diameter, no longer than 8 feet in length, piled up to 4 feet in height and up to 30 feet in width. The program is offered at no cost for residential properties located within the city.
