What do you do with your grass clippings?

I see a lot of guys without dump trucks and yet never see any grass being hauled in the bed nor the in the trailers. I highly doubt they are yard bagging the grass to be left for the town/city pickup either. Selling there services with the ability to dump on site just seems unprofessional? I ask this question because I have a f350 dump truck but want to get another truck without spending a ton of money. An f250 with enclosed trailer setup is what I'd want to get for the guys but what would I have them do with the clippings? Shoveling out of the truck would seem silly. The dump inserts look tacky too. Idk, just thinking out loud with my wallet on my mind.

Sounds like you're assuming everyone bags?

Mulch kits!
We only collect grass early spring first to weeks then put on the mulch kits then in the late fall keep some mulching kits on the have the baggers pick up the leaves....
