I'm planning to get both my front and back lawns scarified soon and I know I'm going to have vast amounts of moss to get rid of. Is there anything useful I can do with the resulting bags full which I know will be the result? If so, what and how. Thank you.
Oh good. For some reason I thought composting it would be a no no. Thank you Logan.
Pile in a quiet, sheltered corner with some bits of log and old wood for critters to shelter in or put it on the compost heap.

It would only be a problem putting it in the compost bin if the lawn had recently been treated with a chemical weed and/or feed. Most people would then put it in the waste collection bin (if you have one) just to be on the safe side
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
Save some to tie in bundles or put in wire netting holders and hang from trees/fences in the early spring for bluetits, long tailed tits etc to make their nests with

The grass hasn't been treated in the last 3 years certainly and probably never has been judging by the state of it I picked up a bag of horse poo yesterday so I'll put a mixture in the compost. I'll save some for the birds to use next spring too Dove - thank you for the suggestion.
