Start with it opened and flat and load it with yard debris. Next roll in the long edges to zip the main belly zipper, zip the two short zippers that are by the patch, then stand it up and squash the heck out of it to make more and more room as needed. The industrial-grade mesh can handle a ridiculous amount of compacting even with sticks that will not poke through. Combine this with any shredder product and you can likely get over 20 bags worth of leaves into a single burrito! Watch our Quick Usage Video

Open one side of the burrito and lay the open side flat under the bush you are trimming so the trimmings fall onto the opened mesh. Lift the open side flap so the trimmings slide into the pocket created on the other side still zipped. Move to the next position under the bush and keep it moving! Very fast and easy to do. Saved me a ton of time!
