These are all regular clients or people i do cleanups for every year. Signs on trucks as you can see, biz cards, job signs. nothing out of the ordinary.

I'm sure i'll do more then 35 because quite a few people havent called yet who i usually do every fall.


Plus my buddy Joey who works with me has bout 25 - 30 cleanups of his own.


So between the two of us we're doing over 70 cleanups i'm sure. Many will be done twice. We've already done 20 - 30 cleanups but they're getn done again by Thanksgiving or right after.

I'm planning on it. Last year myself and some other guys were planning on going but a storm came and the snow wouldn't stop so we had to stay home and plow parking lots and driveways instead.
Its awesome, ive gone the past 5 yrs and its been great each time. I think its around early February. Defiantly worth the trip into Boston.

I like that 05 grill and lights. I knew I reconized your truck from plowsite. Looks like your pretty well established in the lawn business.

Thanks for the compliments. You should be seeing me hanging out over on Plowsite more often as the mowing and landscaping season comes to a break for winter.

Another place i have i paid $300 for the entire year for unlimited amounts except for large loads of trees or brush i have to pay extra.
Wow, don't loose that contact. Thats awesome. You still charge the customer for the amount of leaves you take away right? Do you charge by the cubic yard?
