    In S Jersey Natures Choice will take them but if you dont have them stop and ask a few farmers if you could dump on their property or leave them on site at the yards or charge extra for haul away I charge $5 per full dump from the mower if I haul away or dump onsite at no cost

    Hey smart a** Most NJ towns and counties dont handle grass clipping collection from commercial operators, only homeowners if that. Generally in Nj you have to get a vehicle and trailer registered (dumping permit) with the state in order to even bring it to one of the few private landfills/ transfer stations.

    I did call the county and there are no public dumps for commercial compaines that is why I asked the question. Thanks guys I'll ask around and see if some farmers are willing to take my clippings.

    I live in Burlington County also and I had the same problem. Where do you dump the grass? I also work part time at a local garden center and they are letting me get an extra dumpster up there to put the grass in. It is a 4 yard dumpster. I called waste management to see if I can put grass in it and they said that as long as the grass is in trash bags, it wouldn’t be a problem. It makes it easier for me, because a 45 gallon trash bag fits perfect around a grass gobbler. Put the bag on it and dump. They said it would cost $90 a month for a twice a month pick up. So I will see how this works out this season.

    just dump in the back of your truck and drive really fast down some country roads. They'll be gone in only a few miles.

    Thanks Wyllner's L & Landscaping at least i know in the worst case I can use a dumpster. I was hoping I didn't't have to use a dumpster and could just go to some dump and unload. If anyone knows of a dump site in Burlington county let me know still interested.
