I'm sorry to tell ya but you are way of base. You should not be rolling any lawn.

Yea run it over! How about the property owner's kid bare foot in the summer. Or maybe there dog. A piece of glass cost me over $400 once cuz my dog slashed her paw in a piece and needed 14 stitches. It all boils down to liability. If there happy with raking it up and a shop vac then go for it. If someone could get hurt if there is a lot then rake up some and make the trucks insurance pay for some loam and seed. Some of you guys need to use your heads and stop being just the mower boy.

Rake and shop vac. If you roll it or bury it under a thin layer of soil it will eventually move up to the surface by way of frost heaving.
