Hi all, I'm looking for a littile advice; I'm trying to weigh up the pros and cons of investing in a shredder for managing garden waste.
At the moment I bag up (builders bags) quite a bit of garden waste, hedge cuttings from garden clearences, winter tidys etc. etc. which is disposed of at the local council tip; the cost for this is passed on to my customers. It's a bit time consuming filling the bags, often cutting down the waste first, before we fill them.
Would somthing like an Eliet Maestro Shredder make life any easier, would shredding the waste before bagging it save any time? I'm looking at the Maestro as this will fit in the van, and affords better access to gardens.
I know some gardeners sell the mulch or dispose of it in the customers garden, realistically I cant see this happening that often, so I'll still be charging the customer and visiting the tip.
As background, I'm a one man one van band with an employee who works for me 2 days a week.
