$500- then Id show up on trash day, pull it all to the curb and flash a $100 bill to the driver... 20 mins $400.00

Now I just have to figure out what time the trash man would be on that street. And hope he is need of $100 or I am stuck with that mess. So on a real note is $500 a fair price? Thanks James

I would do it for about $175. But I could fit it all in one load. And take it to a local business that takes all my green waste for free. It would take about 2 hours total. So that is a good price to me.

What kind of business takes yard waste for free? Just curious... In my area dump fees aren't that much $5-10 per truck load but the landfill is 30 min away so it's the time & gas that makes it suck! So in my situation I'd figure out
1) could I get it in 1 load?
2) how long it would take to load it? x about $35/hr
3) add your disposal fees & time. In my case i'd add about $50 for that.

Looking at the pics I'd gues about $200-250

There is a business in my town called the Shasta Energy Company. They take all green waste for free. Even the city takes their green waste there. The company burns the green waste and turns it into energy and sells it. It is nice to have because there is no limit to how much you can take there. They are only about 10 miles from town, so it's not a long drive.

I would estimate how much time to fill up the truck and trailer.
tie it down and cover it.
drive to the proper dump site.
untie and uncover it.
and how long its going to take you to dump it.

Then ad the cost of dumping it on top of it. Mark up the dump fee about 15%.

you should have a regular place to dump this stuff if you do cleanups and that sort of thing.?

that looks like two or three 8ft pickup truck loads or one dump with high side boards, I would guess between 400 and 500, but it depends, 9 yards dumped here is $63 bucks plus the driver and insurance and gas and mileage to dump, figure each load will cost you at least $110 bucks total, then add your labor $45 an hour per man hour, lets say 3 hours two guys, $45 x 6=$270, so 110 plus $270= 380, so that is one truck load, I would do $490 if two. But its hard to tell how much is in that pic, and how much actually labor and time is involved, good luck. Be sure to ask customer how much they are looking to spend, dont want to send a crazy bill they are not going to pay.

shouldn't all of this be figured into your cost to operate per man hour or something like that?
