Place for dumping leaves

I'm having a hard time finding a place that will take leaves in the Virginia beach/ Chesapeake areas. The dump fees for commercial application here are ridiculous. If like to upgrade into a truck loader so I can get more jobs done quickly, but only if I can find a place to dump. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

We have worked out an agreement with several companies in our area to dump leaves. The big landscape installers with big landscape lots will take leaves from us to compost and add into their landscape mix the following spring. We also have a landscape supply yard that takes them, and sells them back to us in the spring mixed into their landscape mix. Most recently we have worked out an agreement with an organic urban farm, who uses the composted leaves in their crops. In all of these arrangements, the leaves must be clean, so we pick out all the trash prior to running them through the loader.
