Pat, I usually never mow in the rain, but this week is an exception. There is now way I will get caught up if I let them all go this week. I am picking the "most dry days" this week and mowing them high - like at 4 inches, just so I can keep them in check. I am getting new calls every single day and it's gonna be a great season. There's something wrong with your Z if the chute plugs up! I can understand it making a mess and clumps that you have to smooth out, but the discharge chute should NOT plug up! wait...you're not talking about a bagging chute are you?

Pat, I only have to bag like 3 or 4 of my lawns and I keep all the leaves from fall/spring cleanups, then mix in the grass from the summer and add soil from any landscaping jobs and make my own compost. But I can do that since it's a relatively small amount of debris - probably about 3 yds total on the pile now. It reduces a lot over time as you mix it. If you have a LOT to deal with then probably take it to dump or landfill. You MIGHT try putting an add in the paper and see if any farmers in your area could use it, kinda crazy but might be worth a shot - certainly better than landfill.

i agree i would rather compost them then put to a landfill. I have checked local dumps and they dont take them anyway. There is some places in auburn but ONLY if you are a auburn resident and you have to have a license with address. I have close to 9 yards leaves and pine needles from just 3 of my cleanups which is more then i can handle in my yard other wise i would compost. I have a small yard. Thank you
