I pay $300 for the year of unlimited amount or truck loads of dumping.

Wow, 300 is a bargain and a half. I pay 160.00 to dump my dump trailer when its full, which is about every two weeks. Good Deal man.

I know its a killer deal. They even stack the piles and move the debris. They have all kinds of equipment and produce crushed stone and loam out of it. Its a private place but right in my area and easy to dump at.

Turtle Creek,
I know you are looking for the trash cans but another good alternative that I do is I use 55 gallon reusable bags made of tarp material. They are perfect for everything because you can just pull the string to close them and then dump at the end of the day and the next day be able to use them again. I myself might get a couple of those trashcans for fall though.

I've used them back to clean up a beach after the winter, because all the junk washes up, I lifted the back, and it ripped, I must have had a faulty pack of bags.

It's really great to see somebody younger than me, if only a year, have such a great setup. I find it hard not to be envious, but I just got a later start than you and someday I'll be there. I'm glad you take care of your equipment, it really sets you apart. You obviously put a lot of time in your business and it shows. Keep up the good work!

What's even more of a killer deal? My dumping place. City maintained, and it is completely FREE! Open 24/7! That's rural Minnesota for ya-

Hey, just curious: where did you learn all this? Do you have a family member to look up to, or did you pave your own way?
