The bags are costed in and I have never found anyone who would take them back but I have taken them back to have filled again for another delivery which has reduced the price on the aggregate, I used to fill it with grass clippings hook it on the towbar and drag it over to the corner of the garden but have now bought mower with mulcher and now have no clippings.

We stand the empty bags on wooden pallets then just fill them up, we do have the traditional method of stacking the cord and covering but all the odd sized bits and smaller bits for our smaller fire go into these bags it makes it easy when getting wood in, then we cover the bags with a waterproof cover.

nellyhei - how do you stack the wood in the bag?  with it on its side?

We use ours to stack wood in as they keep it dry and doesn't tumble when getting to the end of the cord.

Most of these bags say single use only but hang onto them-handy for taking stuff to the dump as long as you do not overfill so they are too heavy to handle
