Weigh and pay self-service leaves

We've already moved on from bagging up our leaves into compostable bags. We found that the starch bags didn't keep the leaves as fresh as plastic bags, but we aren't willing to return to using disposable plastic. So we're now storing all our fresh leaves in large plastic containers in the shop, both in the fridge and on the shelves, from where customers can help themselves using tongs. We're offering three types of bag to use for this - free brown paper bags, compostable stach bags at 5p, and degradable plastic carrier bags also at 5p. We then weigh the bag on the shop scales. Customers can bring their own bags and containers to weigh into.
