Those are the ones I love to find. They are rare, so valuable indeed. Somehow, and I don't know how, some people can put the heaviest stuff in the flimsiest bags. There is just no way to pick them up without the bags bursting. I have found that using gloves really helps a lot, it keeps my fingers from pushing though so easily. I picked up some beautiful shredded stuff the other day in clear bags, now most of the time clear bags are really weak. But those bags were super strong, I wish everyone would use clear strong bags. It lets you see what is in them while driving by and allows to pick up even very heavy bags without them bursting.

A friend suggested wrapping the bags in an old blanket and then picking up the blanket. That might work to keep from poking thru the bags. But, yes, oh my this stuff is beautiful. Not only finely shredded dry leaves, grass, and pine needles but he managed to suck up a lot of dust/soil as well, so really it's like "add water, stir, and instant compost." Let's pass a new law: All curbside trash must be in clear bags so compost collectors can see what's what! Hurray!
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
