    Provided your business has a shop with room - dump it there and start a compost pile.
    Or - find a nursury in the area that is selling compost tea and sell the clippings to them.
    Organic compost tea is starting to catch on as a viable method for buttressing microbial activity in soils - why not ride the train to the end of the tracks?

    A good use for bagged clippings is someone close to your homebase with livestock. Livestock such as cattle, pigs, goats, or sheep will feed on green grass clippings just as they would alfalfa.
