    Your a landscape company and your working without a trailer?? :dizzy: I thought I had heard it all..Really the best way to remove debri is with your own trailer.. ;)
    But you don't sound as though you own one soooo :rolleyes:
    Hire somebody who does.Then take the $$ from this "huge" job and buy one.

    chipper/shredder !!!! Feed it in and blow it into your truck. It should reduce bushes, trees and shrubs down from 20 to 1 ratio
    Have everything ready to feed and you might get by with a 4 hr. rental

    The best way to remove debris is not with a trailer. It is as Mac said with a chipper. Matt does it that way all the time, has all the shrubs/bushes/debris lined up... rents the chipper which makes easy work of getting rid of the spoils.

    Check with the city where your doing the job. Where I live, the city has a tree truck that comes by once or twice a week and picks up branches, leaves, grass, etc. They pull their own chipper and truck and dispose of it for free! payup

    No kidding guys???I blow the stuff from the chipper into the trailer,but figured he needed the trailer as a first step anyway cuz he said it was such a huge job,I thought a chipper was a given but I guess not.
