Sounds like a great plan, and welcome to LawnSite, RexMan!
I honestly believe that once the technology is tweaked and fine tuned in the processing of various crops for ethanol, that the farmers won't be able to keep up and there will be growing demand for biosolids like clippings and leaves to process into ethanol. The way technology in the field is headed, and the way world markets in energy are headed, I can envision a landscaper in a just a couple years ACTUALLY GETTING PAID to dump their clean load of biosolids at designated sites. But this could be it's own thread....
