    Leone, call a couple of local housing developers they may want the material to shred up while they shred up trees. Also landscapers suppy houses want the stuff.

    Call your city (nearsest. They may have a yard that takes material. Here, we have one, and they charge around 12 bucks a yard, I think,... it may be less.

    Big Bad Ram, if you give a tip to the girl do you get a better rate. Does she charge by the pound and does she give a better rate if you have a bigger load?
