on the curb at the job. I'm not going to pay the town dump a grand to dump leaves and grass clippings I spend less than half on bags per season!! Just my 2 cents

Dump everything into the back of the truck. At the end of the day I have two places I can dump. I have a compost pile behind my house back in the trees. Or I have the city maintained place. I usually go to the cities place. Just to much of a hassle to manuver a trailer through all the trees. I usually just dump clippings and what not from my place there

We have two sites where we pich fork it over the fence for horses...You should see these horses run when they see the truck pull up....Grass clippings are only 1 step away from horsehit

I guess I'm lucky because I have a 28 acre pasture to dump in. Grass gets put in a big pile for compost. Leaves I try to put in low places.

I dont know a lot about horses so this may be naive, but wouldn't the residue from the fertilizer and pesticides on the grass be potentially harmful to the horses?

Burn it? serious? In NJ that would make the news as you go in hand cuffs.

Every now and then my "dead beat" customers take a 5 yard load on their lawn. Otherwise we pay to dump in NJ.

local gravel pit here in town has pits in several areas, lots of property usually dont care where i dump no charge. If thats not convienient then I have a 4 yard dumpster I pay 60 bucks a month on, and they would haul anything, hell i could put a couple dead hookers in there and they would take it.

So true. That's a big no-no here.
