If you want to get fancy about collecting wood. I collect clean sawdust (without glue and such) and press homemade logs. You take a pvc tube about a foot long drill a lot of small holes in it. Put a removable endcap on it and fit it to a basic squeeze glue gun. Fill it with watered down sawdust with spacers (washers for example) every inch or so, pull the trigger to press out the water, then pop them out. Let them dry for a while and presto homemade logs. You can find the contraption on youtube for a better description than mine, but it is well worth trying to make if you have a lot of sawdust at hand.
