    Smoke it.






    Nah, seriously I side discharge unless someone special requests bagging, then I would throw it in truck and bring to my home compost pile.

    Depends on the season for us bag it when we have to,mulch it when we can leave bags for collection sometimes we take them with us for elderly people.It seems like half of my customers have some excuse why they cannot take the bags to the street for collection when it basically boils down to they just don't want to look at them or the are just lazy.

    Clippings are taken to the families local farm and composted. Clippings that have been treated with a pesticide are taken to the local composting facility.
    I envy you guys that are able to side discharge. The level of cleanliness that is expexted here I could never get away with side discharging.

    We leave it for garbage pick-up or put it in our own dumpster.

    We all bag pretty much everything here, it get's dumped into my dump bed on my truck and hauled to a cow pasture daily. Unfortunatley this year is probably the last for doing that as a developer is going to build homes on the property so I will then be driving to the landfill and dumping in their compost site. Our city will not even take bags of grass, though they do offer a compost only dumpster to anyone who wants to pay for one. I'd hate to even try and cram all the grass off of one lawn into one of those! they are big, but one and a half dumps from my dixon and it's full, and then the homeowner would have to wrestle it to the curb on pick up day. Sounds pretty unprofessional if you ask me...

    Sometimes I bring a bag home for my horses to eat unless it has been sprayed recently. They LOVE IT! When I'm bagging at home the horses and cows know what the sound of the buzzer means on the Walker....here they come! LOL!

    Side discharge 99.99%. Bag a couple of areas around swimming pools for extra fee.
