Redford Township does not currently offer a branch chipping service, as it was eliminated on May 1, 2010, as part of budget cuts. As an alternative, we suggest that residents who have a large number of branches that need chipping contact a local tree service company that can provide them with this service. Also, the local Redford Chamber of Commerce (phone number 313-535-0960) may have member tree service companies that they can recommend to you.
Another alternative (if you only have a small number of branches, twigs, or shrubs and they are less than 1½ inches in diameter) is to cut them into lengths of 4 feet or less and tie them into bundles (18 inches in diameter) or place them into yard waste receptacles. The bundles or receptacles cannot weigh more than 60 pounds and should be set next to your other yard waste receptacles. Landscape and tree service contractors are responsible for the removal of all tree materials remaining as a result of their work.
