Cost per yard of leaf removal and/or sticks, limbs, etc. That would be my guess.

It is debris removal for limbs, leaves, trash, spoils from improvements. I usually go with 10% of selling price.

I would bid it at a "per load" basis...that way you're covered no matter how much there is.

i know most of you guys will say im high, but i charge a flat rate $100.00 per truck load, but in my area it costs me atleast 35 to dispose of it at the local dump....i usually put about 3yds on my truck at a time ...

call up and ask, because that may be them wanting you to act as the janitor for the trash tossed out in the yard.

For that I price it at $60 man hour beyond 20 man minutes per visit. this is my only listing of an hourly rate and I do it for shock and awe purposes, so they will make their maintenance guy do his job, or make the tenents do it. Anyone but me.

If it is for trimmings disposal, I just include that in the price of the bid with no separate line item price.

I'd ask them too, as they might have a bunch of mattresses and furniture and miscellaneous CRAP that people abandon when the move in the middle of the night!

And when the tell you what it means, place their 'meaning' into the proposal/contract so there are no issues AFTER you land the job.

Good point. I can't believe they didn't define themselves anywhere it the package.
