Redford Township has discontinued its for a fee branch chipping service effective May 1, 2010, due to budget constraints and staffing cuts. As an alternative, we suggest that residents who have a large amount of branches that need chipping contact a local tree service company who can provide them with this service. Also the local Redford Chamber of Commerce (313) 535-0960 or the Redford Township Business Association (313) 618-0487 may be able to recommend members that provide this service.
Another alternative if you only have a small amount of branches, twigs or shrubs and they are less than 1.5" in diameter is to cut them into lengths of 4 feet or less and tie them into "small" bundles or place them into yard waste receptacles. Landscape and tree service contractors are responsible for the removal of all tree materials remaining as a result of their work.
