Leaves?
« on: November 03, 2007, 04:51:28 PM »

I have ethical issues with taking something that is biodegradable and putting it in a plastic bag to dispose of it. I run my mulching mower (yeah, it's gas powered) over the things, and let them decompose over winter. A guy down the street takes a similar approach: he sweeps them into the street to let cars/wind/water do the dirty work.

You?

Back in our old house, when we had leaves, I would mulch the *feces* out of them, and then take what was left (which was basically leaf dust) to the city compost.

You mulch the dog poop in there too?

Well, I was mulchin' 'em 'til the lawn mower decided it was a good time to take a break.  Now, we have to rake 'em and bag 'em.  We usually do bag a few bags just so the kids can jump in 'em first, but now it looks like we're gonna be bagging for the rest of fall.  We'll be bringing 'em somewhere that can dispose of them.

My mower can barely make it through the grass let alone anything else. I think the shaft is bent.

Maybe I need Cialis.

We're not allowed to bag them. We just pile them in the street and they get hauled away.

Nope, scoop it up. I'm supposed to bag that too, but I don't. Seems stupid.

Mow 'em while the grass is still active up and put it in the yard waste recycling bin. The dog poop goes in there also, and now the recyclable food waste goes in too.

Not in this neck of the woods, anyone familiar with the term "urban flooding"?
