View Full Version : Fall clean-up flyers and rates

09-05-2004, 11:03 PM
This is my first year I will be doing fall clean-ups I just got 500 flyers printed out. I was curious what the best time is to hand them out. Also I was thinking on charging by the hour. I have an eb630 back pack that I will be using to put them out to the curb and then the town goes around and picks up the leaves. I am also trying to get another man on board to operate another blower or move tarps or w/e else. What would be a low rate per hour, high rate, and average rate. Mowing I take in about $30-$40 an hour. Just as a reference.

My leaf cleanups last year, started getting calls in september right through to winter jus bout, all my cleanups started around $225 and went up from there. Blow then mow.

I'd pass the flyers out whenever the leaves start to fall in your area- people probably won't be thinking about it until it happens. In my area this is usually the second half of October. I stick a separate letter in with the bills I send out at the end of September for regular customers letting them know I'm available to do leaf removal.
