For years now, the City of Corte Madera has hosted a “Free Chipper Weekend” in the gravel overflow parking lot north of Nordstrom in Corte Madera, and these years’ event on July 7 & 8 was a success.
In containers provided by Mill Valley Refuse and chippers and tools provided by the City Public Works department, the event cleared a sizable amount of green waste from the WUI (Wildland Urban Interface) areas of Corte Madera. Not only does the event aim to provide a more “fire-safe” community, it provides an opportunity to create a more “walk-friendly” community by making the streets and sidewalks safer from encroaching vegetation that can be a nuisance, and a hazard.
Corte Madera and Larkspur residents, mark your calendars and check with the city of Corte Madera in early July about next years’ Chipper event. Note that it will not be in the same location as they are paving that parking lot.
