I have a customer that wants me to take away about 3 tons of concrete he removed from behind his shop... i have an F350 mason dump and a place to dump the material... they charge 50$ a dump, does anyone have any suggestions on what to charge per trip to the dump for something like this? I know someone is gonna reply that i need to figure out my expenses but i'm just lookin to see if anyone had a set price they charge people for this kinda thing... i'm out of central jersey... thanks!

Who's loading it into the truck? How many trips you planning? How far is the dump?

just me... probably two trips and approx 10 miles awayWhats up neighbor?Where are you taking it, Clayton in Edison?I dont know, maybe $60 an hour for you and $60 hour for truck, plus dumping fee. 4 hour job?$480 plus disposal.Easily clear $300 after fixed expenses of your business. Go do another job for $300 profit and not a bad days work for solo (assumption) At $600 a day. Also I'm assuming there small enough for you to hand load. Knowing what you need to make in a day makes it easier to bid.

yep, all hand loaded... thats true, daily income easy to base a bid on... makes sense... but yeah, i figure i'm gonna charge him 100 bucks per trip to the dump... no, VOLLERS over in whitehouse... it's a straight shot down rt 22... 100 bucks per trip not including the dump fee... so we'll see how that goes... if it only winds up taking one trip i figure maybe i'll charge 135, or so? idk thanks for the figures to compare to....

I'd get a quote to get a dumpster on the job, then just figure labor to load. Concrete has to be hard on a dump bed.

Doesn't take much concrete to make a 3000 pound load.
I figure my daily rate and a tank of fuel plus dump fees.
don't be shy just give him the price and when you can do it.
If he's already your customer
, he knows your work and you are dependable and he does not have to waste his time looking for someone else.

yeah, lol he said 3 tons... i checked it out and it might be a bit more... when i go to the recycling plant they just charge me by the size of my bed... 2 cu. yards of debris, i think this will be a solid 3 trips...

I'm assuming you are going to go right down 22 and drop off at Vollers. Why go to edison from bridgewater.

Anyhow, figure just you and two trips is a half a day labor plus your costs. I dunno uneducated guess...500 bucks.

just read that you are going to vollers...you probablly know but they charge by load not by weight. Back of my short bed pickup runs me about 35 bucks. Dump trailer about 8 or so yards ran me around 85-90...was awhile back can't remember.

not sure if you are aware but they won't accept anything mixed in with there concrete since they are state certified. First time I ever went there I had some paper left over from some bags of concrete we repoured...I'm talking not even a handful...he made me go dumpster diving and pick all the crap out. FYI thats all.

Vollers is located right off 22...HOWEVER, you need to pass vollers and make a left onto county line road and use the rear entrance which is located right next to Shemin nursery. I forget the name of the road you make the left onto after the left on county line.

they Charge you to to bring in your concrete waste to recycle that sucks!! we have a couple of RD construction comps that just let you bring it in clean or with rebar For free I now what your all say @#@# me right? why they charging you when they are bustin it up and reusing it. it saves them money in material cost on their road projects

I don't just use it for concrete walks and such. We use it for all our cut pavers as well. I usually bring a dingo bucket or so back to the shope until the pile gets big enough for a pickup load and then have one of the guys travel down and unload it on a light day.
