What are some of the best ways to get ride of all the grass clipping you collect?
have someone in the back of the truck shoveling as you go down the freeway
Here's how I do it! Mind you this picture was from last August sometime, Temps were in the upper 90s and it was dry here for about 3 months... This was about 2/3 of a days haul.
Spring/fall, or any wet time of the year, the poor truck looks like this by noon sometimes! The truck dumps, of course, and I have several sites to choose from, out landfill has a seperate compost site and takes it for free, plus the couple other locations to run too.
We have a contractor dump yard where we dump grass clippings, hedge clippings and leaves.
Yep, free! We are pretty lucky around here I guess... And that "free" is why everyone bags around here. Most all homeowners are used to having their lawns bagged, and basically if you don't bag, you aren't going to be mowing any nice lawns.
thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to look around my area for places to take grass.
My father in law has 20 acres so I dump all my grass, leafs, debris down there and burn it twice a year.
If I bag I do not remove from site...I will find a place onsite to dump.
We have a local car wash that has a large sign that says: NO LAWN CARE EQUIPMENT ALLOWED!!!" I dump mine in the wash bay drains late at night......
The small town i live in also has a free brush site/dump. Lucky me
