    Not to start another mulch vs. bagging debate, but for those who do wind up with debris in ur rig at the end of the day, where do you dump it, and, how much is it costing u?

    if Im in a hurry, I dump it in an area in my back lot. We take it to the landfill, at $36.00 a ton, it gets expensive in a hurry. If Im going to bag, I try to get my customers on the day BEFORE trash pickup and leave the bags at the curb. we really aren't supposed to do that, because the city wants to rake in all the money they can from dump fees for yard waste which they turn into mulch and re-sell.

    Free--scrape off top soil dig hole and fill with debri, then sell the the clay that was dug out for island beds topped off with the topsoil I scraped off. So I make money 3 differnt ways on disposing of debri that will eventually rot away. I have got to try composting
