What's up with that?
Sorry for the rant.
At least you have the curbside option.

No one around me will take it for less than $50.00 plus weight. I then came up with a device that I built out of plywood that sits against the tailgate of my truck and acts as a huge air scoop. Normally, driving down the freeway with a bed full of clippings will cause only the ones closest to the tailgate to blow out. With my air scoop, all the air 5 feet above the cab of my truck is funneled into the bed of my truck, and empties about 2 yards of clippings in 3 minutes (at 70 mph). Of course, I only use this thing at night.
