Anyone use FIBC sacks for cleanups?

Just wondering if anyone out there uses FIBC sacks for bulk cleanup of leaves, debris, whatever. It looks like it would be easier to dump clippings in and use a a set of forks to unload and dump. Looks like most of them start out around 36x36x36 and pretty cheap pricing, plus reusable.

If they are what I think they are, Kajun uses them for his sandbagging business. I've never seen them used for leaves though, but it could be an effective way if you have to bag them up and dont have a leaf loader.

I sometimes pick up matl in these so i save the sacks. They suck to work out of and dump though. I like them for taking home extra sand etc

I'd like to have something better than just dumping the baggers in the back of the truck on a tarp or something. We don't have a lot of yards in the fall that don't have places to dump on-site, but it's still enough to make me wish I had something easier.
