  • Where Do You Guys Dump?

    My secret dumping place has recently become not secret.SOOOOO...getting rid of spring clean up stuff (leaves, brush, sticks), just became much harder.

    Town dumps are only available to residents.Since I work in 5 different towns this may be a problem this spring.

    As you guys know illegal dumping will cost you big $$$$ if you get caught.

    Any ideas? or Where do most of you dump?

    Dave, did you ever ask the township dump if they will let contractor dump for a fee? I think a lot of them offer that.

      Yea Steve, I'll be looking at that option.It isn't cheap.And, in this economy it is going to be hard to pass that cost on to your customers.

      I will keep you posted on prices!

        I look forwards to hearing from you on this.

        Maybe there are other places in your area that will accept brush and such to create compost.

          I operate in Florida and we use the County dumps/land fills, 12' trailer load only costs on average $4 to $10 bucks

            Do they have any limits to what you can bring in? Just brush or can you bring in concrete and such? What about junk/trash picked up from the yard?

            Do they base it on trailer weight?

                  That still sounds steep.....

                  I often unload say a truckload at abut 400-650lbs for around $10 or less.
                  & what is $15/minute about? If it takes you 10 minutes to unload are you going to be charged $150?

                    dump

                    Since I mostly dump wood chips I dump at nursery's and they let me dump grass, If you know any nursery's ask them if you could dump it there depending on what your dumping they may use it as they use wood chips to spread around there trees etc...

                      I use an ag supply place to dump. They charge me $30.00 for my 22 yard truck, compost or grind what I take them, and then sell it back to me at $15.30 per yard as mulch or landscape mix. I need to get into the supply business!!

                          we are paying 55 a ton for grass or leaves and 85 for brush or trees.
                          otherwise the next cheapest one is 85 then 90 a ton.

                          you need to have accounts in the town, and pay a yearly fee of 150 to use the dump

                            I got a friend with about 20 acres of lane, who is filling in a big hole. He got a permit to do so and several of us dump our debris in there. Should be able to do it for a few more years. Ands its free

                              I placed an ad on Craigslist. A guy with with a real need for compost responded to the ad. He said if you have more than I need you can dump here and finish out your season. We probably brought in 40 cubic yards, more than he needed.

                              The problem we have now run into is that the local recycling company had their permit snatched from them. One can only imagine what for, but it has put a real burden on that aspect of fall leaf clean up.

                              My plan going forward is to offer this guy work via leads I get, since he can actual do what we do, just in a much smaller scale. Hopefully this kiss-butt tactic will work...haha.
