    For those of you who bag grass/leaves and trim hedges/do cleanups, where do you dump it all at? I bag almost all of my lawns because most of my customers want it and it looks nicer.

    I have a small hillside at my house where I would dump stuff last year, but my 2 nieghbors dug/are going to be digging out here parts so there will be alot less room to dump this year(They never had a problem with me dumping there).

    I have been looking for a nice local piece of property to have a shop and a place to dump. Just wondering where you guys dump at?:waving:

    Thankfully, I am blessed have the property that I can maintain a mulch and brush pile (down in te pasture). I burn once every year or two. I also let a few other lco's I know dump down there to help them out. It can really be a help to them - especially when they are close. I was just out there yesterday dumping, and realized, this thing hasn't been burned in a few years, and is now about 75 ft. across. I have GOT to get a permit and get this thing taken care of!:rolleyes:

    Lucky guys! If I have a small enough load, I dump it in the field behind my house. Otherwise, it's around $30 to take it to the landscape dump, which can be a real pain, as it's not exactly close by.
