What to do with grass, leaves & debris??

Whats everyone do with their clippings (when they bag), leaves and debris after spring/fall cleanups? I take my grass to a farmer for his horses but need some other options.

Try contacting your counties public works dept. and see if they will let you dump it at their site. Our counties public works dept. will let us dump trailer loads of leaves, tree debris,etc. at the lot where they store all their equipment and trucks. They usually have a bunch of big roll-off dumpsters around and if you dont make a mess, they let us dump for FREE! Sometimes they even start piles and ground it up into mulch and we are allowed to go get some for free if we need it, but most of my clients prefer the dark hardwood mulch and theirs is more of a lighter color, but hey its FREE. If your county turns you away, try your city.Good luck, I know how much of a pain that stuff is to get rid of! I cant count the number of neighbors who have complained about my "piles" in my old house!!
