its possible they are only set-up for mulch production and not compost also.

Well hopefully you charged enough to cover the cost of disposal. I always have a disposal charge in my clean-ups, then when I am done I go to the dump, pay my $52/ton and be on my way. If people don't want to pay for the disposal fee, I offer to put it in paper leaf bags and let them throw it out in their trash for $2/bag.

I leave it with the homeowner for trash pick-up.Most of the cities we work in we can use plastic bags.Other places it goes in brown bags for trash collection or to the dump.

We drop it off at environmental landfill but most of our homes have pickup so most we leave in paper bags for the customer

in the woods, when no one is looking. for u guys that don't understand why they won't take grass, you amaze me. don't u even know your business? grass contains pesticides. pesticides cause diseases in humans.

My local brush/leaf dump won't take grass clippings, and the garbage transfer station won't take "yard waste". At the leaf dump, they compost leaves, but the grass clippings degrade at a different rate and also release really stinky gas. There are other reasons too, but those are the basic ones.

This is one of the multiple reasons we don't collect grass.
