Not really costing me anything I haven't accounted for. I know about how much trimmings I'm going to have to take. I wait until my trailer is ready to go and make a full dump. It's a 1/4 mile from the house and takes 30 minutes max to start the truck to turn the truck off back at the house. I give myself 10 bucks in labor. I usually only have to go when I do Sod jobs or cutouts for beds or hardscapes. I can just throw the hedge clippings or palm clippings in with those loads. Essentially I double dip most of the time. The hardwood I keep for the fire pit when we have family and friends get together at the house around the pool etc.... Sometimes I'll fire the smoker up and burn some hard wood in it then I'll throw some in the fire pit.
