A: The amount of time it can take to chip varies due to: accessibility, terrain, volume of material, property size, and how well the piles are stacked. Once you have completed your chipping intake form, we may request photos of your stacked piles and photos of access to your property. You will be contacted by a CUSP staff member to discuss any additional questions. We will then estimate expected chipping time. First time patrons often overestimate how long the process may take.
