Default New LAW

I was told that in several surrounding cities, they have banned everyone from bagging grass clippings, & transporting grass to any dump.

Basically the grass you cut, must stay on the property.

The law hasn't passed in Montreal yet, so... fingers are crossed.

I don't mind mulching & what not, but bringing the grass with me after a job makes my company different than the rest.

Scott,

If I bagged after every job down here I would have to charge more than double what I charge now. Time is money and money is time. Nobody works for free. LOL

Also, if you mulch and recycle the clipping back into the lawn, the tops of the clipping have the fertilizer in them and treat the lawns again.

With more time you have, the more jobs you can schedule in a day and not have to fill your nice new trailer with bags of clipping to take to the dump. Maybe more room for a zero turn or a bigger walk behind to start you onto bigger and better things in the future.

John
