    on the curb at the job. I'm not going to pay the town dump a grand to dump leaves and grass clippings I spend less than half on bags per season!! Just my 2 cents

    Dump everything into the back of the truck. At the end of the day I have two places I can dump. I have a compost pile behind my house back in the trees. Or I have the city maintained place. I usually go to the cities place. Just to much of a hassle to manuver a trailer through all the trees. I usually just dump clippings and what not from my place there

    I guess I'm lucky because I have a 28 acre pasture to dump in. Grass gets put in a big pile for compost. Leaves I try to put in low places.
