Here in NJ you have to have some kind of license for composting. Grass clippings are a whole other big issue & I was told by a recycling company that the license to accept clippings is around $100,000 (not sure if that's a one time fee or yearly).
This is kind of scary. One of the 2 businesses I'm looking at buying next spring is a nursery, in an area where there are lots of leaves. I was thinking I could charge for removal of the grass clippings & leaves, take them back to the nursery, turn them into compost, and then resell.

First check out your zoning,Check with EPA. Find out about permits,ect. It can be very costley, if you do not do your home work. How will you fianance this? Do you have a bussiness plan? Reserch and planing ahead is alot easyer to me than opening up my wallet.
