Chipping Program
The curbside brush/limb chipping program is a free service provided to the residents of Pflugerville. We will not pick up any commercial businesses, Home Owner Associations or churches, residential only. Requests for curbside service occurs by two zones to help expedite pickup by the city for this complimentary service.  Refer to this zone map and calendar to find your specific address zone. The city will service Zone 1 the first full two weeks of the month, and Zone 2 will be serviced on the third and fourth week of each month.

Citizens must call 512-252-2447 (CHIP) or Email Chipping with name, address and phone number to be placed on the schedule for pickup. Call our chipping line anytime to be placed on the schedule.

Brush WILL NOT be picked up if a request is not called in.

Please note, the chipping service cannot operate in rainy or wet weather.

Brush piles cannot exceed 10 feet in length per address.
