It tucks itself into the grass. It was especially bad at this one with about a 1 acre open area on the side for uhaul trailers. I just said **** it and mowed in one direction it all to one area and raking it, but that just made it worse. Going in the morning to get some grabbers and a 5 gallon bucket to take with me. Why must people throw all that **** on the ground?

I just don't have enough to bag to warrant the cost of the bagger.

I know what you're saying. I mow 6 car washes, the trash is insane.

I mowed them last year, this year i notified them I am not responsible for trash on the hard surfaces, only in the grass. It cut down on a lot of my problems.

Interesting won't be the word for it if you didn't including litter pick up in your bid. I have seen gas stations that look like snow has fallen after they have been mowed. The ones that have the bigger lawns. I won't pick up cigarette buttes and I bet gas stations are loaded with them. I really hate those plastic rappers from cigarette packs
