Cleanups are charged by the hour.
I use a mower with bagger,or lazer with ultra vac, or blow into piles, put on a tarp drag to street. It would be hard to say what to charge because of the amount of leaves different properties will have. I think most are are around 25.00-35.00 hour per man.
Last year I got a referral from a customer and the man wanted the leaves raked from entire lawn. If he wants this done the same way this year the rate will be 50.00 hr.(Thats a lot of work, really makes you appreciate the commerecial mowers,blowers.)

Blow Leaves From beds 40.00 hr. Same price as mowing to mulch I add 10.00 to dump on-site and 25.00 to bring them to my house for the city to pick up. The garbage man wonders.........where does he get all those leaves and has only 2 trees.

but I'm New at this also.

Using the ultra vac and exmark lazer HP last season, by myself, I average $75 per hour in revenue. Most of the time I bid by the job, but on some of the really big jobs that are hard to estimate, I gave them an hourly fee. Usually $50 when I go that route. If I use my helper I adjust that rate accordingly.
