should be stacked alongside the roadway in several small piles rather

brush), accessible to the chipper crew.
No material should be greater than
3” in diameter.

collected and then made available to property owners to spread on
their property for garden mulch, dust abatement, to limit weed growth
and inhibit erosion.
