I just got a truck so this opens up the world of being able to dump things and pick up mulch and such. How much do you guys pay to dump a pickup full of wood?

I have 4 6' arborvitaes (70lbs each?) and about 200 lbs of old plywood and 2x4s

How much would you guys typically pay for this?

10yd truck full usually runs me $15-20 depending on how full we stuff it. But we compost 90% of the debris we bring in, haven't been to the dump in 2 years

Big load would probably be $150 at our dump but if you take it to a mulch grinde place not more than $30.

Leaves are free. Area towns around me all have different pricing for different things. For brush it's only $5 for a pickup truck load but if it's in a dump truck with 1 to 2 yards it's $20 or so and in a dump trailer it's $30 or $40, even if it's the same amount...don't make much sense but that's how it goes. Getting rid of stumps and larger wood (over 3 inch diameter) is difficult and any type of demo debris is downright costly. I have areas out back for light brush/clippings, leaves and grass.

My buddy burns all limbs for me and wood. There is a auto body place that heats there shop and 3 houses with an outside wood stove that takes anything, even pine for free. if you bring that stuff, anything you want including concrete can go over there banks. My buddy lets me dump over the bank too. I post on craigslist every year to find people who want the debris. hippies like the leaves for organic bs.

My county dump won't allow anyone to use theirs dump trailers, you can bring them but you can't dump it...They told me it had to do with liability

I have a large dumpster at my Pasco shop which charges the Pasco rate of 56.70 per ton. I tried once to go the Linebaugh ave transfer station. The attendant said I needed the HO's property rax receipt and nothing over 3' in lenght. Is there another brush dump on the west side you can just weigh in/out, dump and pay the fee for yard waste? Some days I have way too much to drive around all day or make multiple trips. Or maybe private parties that have land in west Hillsborough county?:usflag:

It all goes to compost as long as it has only organic material, if not, no shortage of people will let you dump for fill.

Our local landfill doesn't charge to dump yard waste. They have you drop the tree limbs, etc. in one area and the grass clipping in another. They grind the limbs up and let people have the mulch for free. As for the grass it is composted and also given away for free.

The word "free" is unheard of around here. How can a landfill do this? Who pays for it?

Just hope the EPA doesn't see your post.

If we use the green dumps, they all charge $75.00 for a metric tonne.

If it's leaves or grass clippings, I can dump it at the back of my farm.

The delivery companies charge about 70 bucks for a delivery (on top of product) within a ten mile radius of their yard...and then it goes up with the distance.

If we only have a yard of mulch, gravel or soil...we can pick it up with a trailer and then I bill the same delivery charge. More than a yard is a hassle. I don't use our trucks to deliver product, only trailers....the shovel came off of a yard tractor at the wholesalers and caused three grand in damage to my new truck

Hard to make a blanket statement about EPA regs, there are so many and it never hurts to take a look as some of their publications that may be relevant like EPA PUB448. I like to say "the bigger the brush you paint with, the more errors you make," or "the bigger the deck, the more the scalping."
