We bag almost all of our customers and only use dump trucks. Dump it right at the shop for composting.

Than just put a tarp in your truck bed. Get along one. If you get one maybe 8X16, you can put it down on the floor of your bed. Start from the tailgate toward the front. That way you have that extra length to cover your load. Also makes it easy to unload. Just pull from the top and down it goes. That's what I did when I first started out.

Or if you have a couple grand, get a dump insert. They work great. You can usually find one on craigslist.

I've seen the commercials on the Loadhandler. Don't know how well it works but, it looks good.

LOAD HANDLER is the greatest thing ever invented in my humble opinion, saves my back a lot of strain, and a lot of time. I do go through about one a year though.

On the commercial properties we just use the dumpster. On residentals we have cans we dump into and then empty at the end of the day. Alot of the larger crews use a dump stake bed and then dump it at the end of the day. I've seen alot of made dump systems in the bed of truck and trailers too.
