    Whenever and where ever I can I rent a chipper and chip it on sight and blow it into natural areas then pine straw over it.

    Local compost facility takes it for $20/ton, $20 minimum. A little pricey, but not terrible. If I have a bigjob with a lot of brush, then I will rent a chipper.

    There is a place by me that recycles Everything, Bushes, stumps, Ect. all the stuff that a average materials supplier won't take. The best part is it gets recycled, instead of occupying space in a landfill.

    The City dump won't touch anything like dirt, or organic material. I have seen waste disposal trucks empty 40yd bins on the street because they were full of sod tearout, yet you can load them to the top with asphalt and plaster without a problem.

    Jim:

    Isn't there a law in Michigan that prevents organic stuff like grass clippings, tree branches, etc from going to a landfill? Those types of things must go to a recycle/compost facility.

    Strange thing though. I cannot take sod to the compost facility. It must go to the landfill. Go figure.
