    I have a big leaf cleanup job to do. Its for my aunt and uncle which i mow for but i have to do this as community service for a ticket i got. Anyway i have it all in a huge pile and am wondering what to do with it now. I have a 5x8 trailer with 4 foot sheet metal sides all around. I was thinking of just loading them in the trailer and throwing a tarp over all of it. This is my first cleanup job to do so any experience is greatly appreciated. tn.jpg

    Since it is already in a large pile--just load it into bags--stand on the bottom mouth of the bag with feet about a foot and a half apart-- hold the top open with one hand while you rake the leaves into the bags with the other--should be about 15-20 large 40 gallon bags--load into trailer and haul to dump or set at street for trash people to haul off--you could take a large plastic trash container and haul each load of leaves to the trailer--
