    I side discharge so I don't have to worry about it. I bag for spring & fall cleanup and haul it to the dump.

    I have a compost site to dump at free of charge for clippings/brush/leaves etc. A large landscape company owns it, and they use what everyone dumps to make mulch.

    Shoosmith landfill, $40 / ton, $40 minimum.
    Accepts credit card, check, or cash.

    You do charge at least $160 / 6x12x2 load, right?
    For a bushel of clippings, say it fills the front 1/8 of the trailer...
    That ought to be at least $20.
    $5 for bagging, $5 for hauling, $5 for unloading...
    Ok, $15 is good.... Still too cheap, thou.

    Funny, I don't get many requests for bagging / hauling anymore.

    I run a mulch kit on my Exmark. When I haul leaves they go to the dump.
