what is the average rate on cleaning up leaves then hauling them away?

3 times the cost of what you charge them for a mowing.
If you are not a mowing contractor then you could plan on an average of 6 man hrs.
Hope this helps.

I sometimes use what Kris posted. I mostly estimate my hours on the job and multiply by $35 to $45 depending on difficulty.

What is your rate per hour for labor? RATE X HOUR + DUMP FEE. Take into account the time spent unloading, loading, drive time to the dump, etc. It's a really simple formula.
Hope this helps, Bill.

We charge 3-4 times the price of what we cut the lawn for. At first last year, i couldnt understand how these guys got sooo much!! Let me tell you, once you do couple the picture gets much much clearer =).

My prices vary greatly not only buy the size of the yard but by how many trees they have! I have some $25 per cut lawns that i charge $75 for a cleanup and some $25 lawns that I charge $200. You need be able to estimate in your head how long it will take and take according to how much you want per hour!

Take into account the time spent unloading, loading, drive time to the dump, etc.
We refer to this as STUD time:
Start: This is how long it takes to get ready for your day before you leave your ofc/shop/garage in the morning
Travel: This is how long it takes you to travel between your routes throughout the day
Unload: This is how long it takes you to unload your equipment and trucks upon returning to your ofc/shop/garage etc.
Dump: This is how long it takes you to travel to and from the dumpsite plus the time involved in unloading your trucks of debris
