1. When you get done trimming bushes, shrubs and small branches, dump the trimmings into a plastic trash bin.
2. Get out your hedge trimmer and use it like an egg beater. Turn it on then stick the cutting blade into the plastic bin and grind away; up and down and side-to-side
This accomplishes two things:
1. As most of what's in the bin is actually air, not trimmings, it reduces the volume of the trimmings by 65-75%.
2. When you then empty the trimmings into plastic garbage bags, the cuttings will be too small to puncture the bags, and you'll need far fewer bags as well.
I can see how that would be a problem. The weight is bad enough, but just getting your arms securely around it would be an even greater challenge.
Did you Just post that on Here????

And I'm talkin' filled with lots of weeds & other clippings of various sorts, a few sticks and some dirt & rocks/concrete, etc, and lightly seasoned with some good old fashioned Great Northwest rainwater. I distinctly remember 1 bag that weighed in at 122 lbs at the recycle facility, and another slightly under that weight.
I was very surprised that they held together when I heaved them up into my bed....
Here's a tip for your autumn pruning and trimming:
Rake all the leaves into a pile, toss on all the trimmed branches and other trimmings. Pour 1 cup gasoline over the pile.
Wait 10 minutes. Light match, toss on the pile and go have a cold drink and watch while it all turns into a few cups of ashes. Toss dirt over leftover ashes and go relax.
If I set them on fire, it's far too likely the entire city of Reno would burn to the ground, as would thousands of acres near Reno.
I've got a pile of dead trees, old pallets and brush that I've been piling up all summer. It's about 25' long, 15' wide and 10' high. I'll probably use 5 gallons to get that one going!

As for the yard waste, I just throw it out back. If conditions are too dry to burn, I just wait until they aren't.
