We use big tarp bags and fill them with grass and load the truck with them.

Within this decade the practice of grass clipping removal by professionals & homeowners alike will come to an abrupt halt...
AND/OR

...there will be giant strides in the fledgeling bioconversion industry towards lowering the costs of converting such materials into useable fuel forms, such as pellets for wood stoves.

blake when we had pickups we just sucked it up and when we had to dump it got the pitch forks out at the end of the day. it sucked but it works.
yea i was thinkin i would build a box for the bed and make it structurally strong so that i can pick it up somehow at the end of the day, just so i can switch from work to personal truck quickly. im not sure yet. thanks for the responses guys.
