Greenwaste disposal

After looking at all of these great pictures, I wonder how do you dispose of your greenwaste? Alot of you must have a good amount of greenwaste that cannot always be mulched. My wife and I do not do to much mulching here in Fresno but used the 90 gallon green cans when possible. We now have 4 greenwaste facilities here that we can dump at. $ 20.00 for a trailer up to 8 ft. in length excluding palms.

We have a green waste center here that grinds to mulch. I think its $25/ ton to dump and then you have to buy the mulch also. They make mulch and soil conditioner products from yard waste and shipping pallets.

Where is trailer parked?

DA Quality Lawns,
My trailer was parked in front of a grape vineyard. Those are table grapes that are sold for consumer purchase. That entire vineyard pictured is also on drip irrigation.

I was about to ask the same. Someone said they are popular in CA.

Looks like a neutered enclosed trailer.
What is the advantage?

Landscape/gardening trailer

My trailer was manufactured in 2002 by Tru-trailers Inc. here in Fresno. This type of trailer is very popular here in the Central Valley. I found this particular trailer on Craigslist and had it modified for my needs. We can use this dump style here because we do not have severe weather as can be found in other parts of the country. I chose the shorter version to keep the wind resistance to a minimum. Some LCO's have trailers that are wider and taller for the equipment storage. It cost me $ 20.00 to dump at the green waste facilities here in Fresno.
