The best way to approach waste management is to contract it out. Most dont think about it that way. Around here everybody been taught that you haul it off to a dump. By the time you pay your workers to break off route and dump you have labor and dump fees.
What i do for my Commercial properties is dump on the property wether its using there dumpster or somerwhere on the property. I just got a commercial property that i am not able to use there disposal so they had 2- 98 gallon containers droped off from there local waste management provider and they handle the cost.

city near me but where I actually do most of my work has a dump for grass, leaves, tree limbs, etc. They charge $10 per yard but usually charge less than you have. They make mulch and compost out of it also, but I don't know what they do with it.

At first I read the title of this thread....and said to myself 'None of your darn business!'

girlfriends house

There is a reason why I bought her a promise ring ;-)

The draw back is I can't unload my leaves or branches on time before she runs out saying she misses me even though I saw her yesterday

I posted an ad on craigslist and got a response from a local rancher who wants my limbs, leaves, grass, and clippings. That saves me $7/yard and I dump 10+ yards/week this time of year.

Dry in up and burn all but grass. I get rid of it and the ashes from the other stuff at my dad's work for free.

The local public dump around here doesn't charge anything if you're only getting rid of green stuff.
