Wood chips will be available for pickup Saturday and Sunday, July 27-28 at Burnidge Forest Preserve in Elgin. Chips may be picked up as soon as the preserve opens at sunrise, through 5 p.m. both days.

Residents need to bring their own shovels and containers. The public is welcome to take as many wood chips as they can haul away. A district staff person will be on hand with a loader tractor between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday, July 27, should anyone wish to have trucks loaded. Signs within the preserve will direct people to the pile location.

The chips are from hardwood trees removed throughout Kane County because of storm damage or clearing efforts. None of the wood chips are from ash trees.

Burnidge Forest Preserve is at 14N035 Coombs Road, Elgin. For more information, call the Forest Preserve District of Kane County at (630) 232-5980 or visit website at www.kaneforest.com.
