We wish more homeowners would use Chip Drop. Why? Because we often dispose of brush (in the form of chips) and logs for our customers.
We wish more homeowners would use Chip Drop. Why? Because we often dispose of brush (in the form of chips) and logs for our customers. Chip Drop provides us with a highly cost-effective way to get rid of logs and chips.
We can dump it with the nearest Chip Drop user who has an open request, which saves us time and saves our customers money. The best part is, the people who request logs/chips get them for free.
Why should you use?
To get chips for free, without having to source them or haul them yourself. Just sign up, put in are quest, prepare your drop area, and wait for wood chips to appear in your yard.
What can wood chips be used for?
Wood chips are an effective mulch. Mulch can be used to kill weeds and grass, add nutrients to the soil, and protect soil from erosion and harsh conditions during the extremes of summer and winter.
Chips can also be used for covering up soggy areas in your yard, or covering play areas (although they’re not necessarily great for bare feet).
How is it free, though?
Chip Drop is free for the homeowners who request chips. Yes, you get chips for 100% free. And with that, you don’t get too be too picky. The load size is whatever an arborist has to dump, and there may even be small amounts of trash in some loads, which you can easily pick out as your spread your mulch.
The platform is funded by the arborists that use it, who pay $20 for each drop they make using Chip drop. And yes, that means that it is ultimately the customer of the arborist who pays the fee, because your local tree service isn’t working for free. But it also means that, thanks to Chip drop, these customers are saving money. How? Because if a tree service has to find a spot to dump chips, that costs a lot more than $20 + a few minutes to drive and dump.
How does it work, exactly?
Sign up and put in your request. You’ll get chips when you’re the closest homeowner to an arborist who has chips to dump (its not based on who signs up first). So yes, sometimes you might have an open request for a while. But its free.
The only cheaper way to get rid of your chips is to use them yourself, or maybe find a neighbor who can.
