The first Saturday of each month the City of Sand Springs offers free tree chipping service to residents. If the Saturday falls on a city holiday weekend, the event will be held the following Saturday.
Bring your tree limbs (up to 2” in diameter) to the Street Department at 8620 West 21st Street between the hours of 7:00 am and 3:00 pm. Bring your Sand Springs water/refuse bill for proof of local residence (in City Limits).
You may also pick up an unlimited amount of free wood chips by visiting the City of Sand Springs tree chipping site. You are welcome to load your own chips, provided that you can cover or tarp the load.
Free firewood is also available at the tree chipping site. The firewood is available on a first come, first serve basis.
Recycling tree chips saves the City of Sand Springs money on disposal and saves valuable landfill space. Mulch helps control weed and plant growth without the use of herbicides in gardens and ornamental planting areas. It can also help conserve soil moisture and keep soil temperatures more moderate during extremely hot and cold weather.
