    Today's technology for communications is amazing. Great tool, it would seem.

    Does no-one want to buy chips? Or you just have so much it's unrealistic to try and sell them?

    It's faster to drop around the corner, than across town.

    I sell chips on occasion.

    On Chipdrop, there are people who pay ~$20 to Chipdrop to receive (free to arbos) and those who are not paying to receive, and the Arbo pays $20 to Chipdrop.

    Not sure if there is a e-credit account where arbos store a portion of the money when homeowners pay, to go toward the next Arbo paid drop. Used to be that way.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    It's easier and faster to just give them away. Plus, it's harder for someone to complain about the occasional log or bit of rakings that often get tossed into the mix when it's free.

    Easier to sell it around here if it's in bags. I'd like to find a cheap source for bags.

    My jobs are small so I've been leaving chips on site for custys.

    If I had large quantities I have a few free dump sites, landscape supply yards, some farms.

    Peter you can get free grain (barley?) bags around here used in beer making. The guys would love to give them to you and see them live a second life.

    I took 300 to use as garbage bags and didn't even begin to put a dent in his stash.
