    It's only decomposed moss, leaves etc so safe to go in garden waste bin.

    I always ask them where they want it, green bin or borders. Emphasise the fact that its good for the plants as its kind of like a 'super compost'- the stuff has been rotting up there for years. Absolutely no need to take it home with you unless you have discussed waste beforehand.

    You can get all sorts of crub out from gutters be it very dry that is easy to bag up or wet stinking slime like this example pic

    Others like conservatory guttering that has no pitch on the gutters also gutter runs with blocked areas/downspout bends will normally have water in them too. So when the vac either cuts out or starts to get too heavy to move about I drain the water out of it. Then after I'm finished so not to put my back out trying to get it back in the van I get rid of the crud inside too normally on a boarder, compost area if they have one. I have also been known to use a convenient bit of common land hedgerow nearby.
