    Well I have a bagging system that has 2 40 gallon holders what I found is the best way to deal with that is bye a bunch of 45gal trask bags insert and then all you have to do is act like your taking the trash out don't have to try to dump into bag from containers pretty nice deal.Also where i am at all the people here want you to take the bags with you so that also makes that easier just a little tip maybe you all already know that though.

    In a lot of Michigan cities, they have an ordinance that dictates that if you bag it (lawn service), you have to take it with you - Creates a lot of problems. The tickets/fines are HUGE (like $2000 for first offense). This is why we really discourage bagging - let it fly or mulch. It cuts down on headache and expense (dumping) and it's better for the enviornment (less waste in landfills/dumps). Our customers really don't seem to mind - except for the occaional old lady that insists that it be bagged (we charge extra to bag).
