Here's how I do it! Mind you this picture was from last August sometime, Temps were in the upper 90s and it was dry here for about 3 months... This was about 2/3 of a days haul.

Spring/fall, or any wet time of the year, the poor truck looks like this by noon sometimes! The truck dumps, of course, and I have several sites to choose from, out landfill has a seperate compost site and takes it for free, plus the couple other locations to run too.

We have a contractor dump yard where we dump grass clippings, hedge clippings and leaves.

Yep, free! We are pretty lucky around here I guess... And that "free" is why everyone bags around here. Most all homeowners are used to having their lawns bagged, and basically if you don't bag, you aren't going to be mowing any nice lawns.

We have a local car wash that has a large sign that says: NO LAWN CARE EQUIPMENT ALLOWED!!!" I dump mine in the wash bay drains late at night......
