I have lots of woods on my property, so I just take the bottom bag off (after knocking all the chips and dust out of my top filter, and around the d.c. rim, then just take the bag out in the woods and scatter the chips and dust around, trying not to make a big pile….then either burn it, or let the rain dissolve most of it….

Depending on your soil and what you have been cutting, can be used to fortify your garden/lawn. Otherwise mine goes on the burn pile.

In the past I had plenty of space to just pile it up around the trees and plants on the property. Then for a while it just went to the landfill…..something that really bothered me since I try to recycle everything. Now I’m back to just putting it in spots around the property.

I put grass clippings and sawdust around trees at the back of my property behind my shop. It keeps the weeds down. After a year or two it makes excellent compost for potting soil or fertilizer for perennial plants.

I sell mine to a horse stable. It pays for the bags. ..But, then again, I produce quite a lot of it.

My garbage service has a separate trash can for “yard waste.” Sawdust is on the approved list for the bin, so I dump it in there.
