    i am in Staunton about 90-100 miles from on I 81 . i can't remember how many yards the trailer hold , the yard has loaders which the claim are 2 1/4 yard buckets but when i get one scoop from the it is usally 7-8 yards.
    i think the trailer holds about 20 of those buckets, the yard is called blue ridge lumber ........there is a place a little closer to you in Buena Vista i believe its a paper mill and they have better mulch than blue ridge
