Is your dump free? Is your labor,gas and time free? My dump charges 20.00 bucks and I'll tack on 20 to 60 bucks depending on travel time and time to unload at the dump. I prefer to bag it and leave it on the curb.

Nothing usually less than $100. By the time I send a 2 man crew, truck, trailer and euipment out tot he job, and then to the dump I wouldn't charge any less.

On normal spring clean-ups. No bushes. Just reg service and pick up sticks and mulch leaves. I charge 2.5 to 3 times what I would normally mow the property for. $40 yard would be $100 - $120. On bigger clean-ups I figure $45 per man hour with $85 per load to the dump.

I would charge 80.00 that would include the dump fee. Our Dump fee around here is like 2.00 a yard. We can usually compact 3-4 lawns into 3 yards of waste. So I wouldn't even bother charging seperate for a dump fee, just throw it in to your price.
