This seems so ridiculous but perhaps someone has a good answer. We have a ***** Craftsman mower with a rear-mounted bag. Great mower, but the trouble is transferring the clippings from the wide opening in the back of the mower bag to one of those narrow-mouthed paper recycling bags our town requires.

We've tried dumping from the narrower end of the mower bag (since its size matches the recycling bag's), but obviously that end is designed to keep clippings from coming out,so we end up reaching in and grabbing clumps of grass handfuls at a time to get clippings into the paper bag.

We don't bag clippings all summer,but for those times that we do bag, it would be nice not to have to physically wrestle the mower bag just so we can recycle.

Thanks in advance for suggestions or tools that might work!

Sounds like you need an intermediate device. It should be light weight, smooth, and funnel shaped. You could probably make something from a sheet of thin plastic like they are now selling as flexible cutting boards.
