Tree Limb Chipping
Tree limb chipping is provided by the City of Katy. Tree limb chipping for the citizens of Katy is provided the first week of January, April, July and October. The crew will start picking up on the east side of the City and will cover each and every street working west until the entire City is picked up. In order for the City crews to provide this type of service, it is important that the tree limbs be cut and trimmed to the following requirements:

Tree limbs that do not meet the above requirements cannot be put into the chipper and will not be picked up by the City. The City will not pick up household garbage, furniture, scrap metal, appliances, automotive parts, debris, rubbish, building materials, etc.
