I'm curious to see how you guys come up with a price in regards to curbside leaf pick ups. I haven't done alot of them, but want to do more of them this year, but I want the pricing to be spot on. I have a couple places I can dump for free, and the rest up in the northern part of the state I dump at the landfill for $20.00 a load.
I'm not looking for your prices, just a formula to make sure I have everything covered, ex:

time to suck up pile x dumping fee x mileage = price?

awesome. I myself started the business 4 years ago. Only spread my business through word of mouth, so I haven't grown too big and I'm pretty spread out everywhere in RI. This winter and next year however I want to focus on growing.

My personal email is rboragine@msn.com. I just dumped a dozen customers this past spring and summer to really focus on my core business which is total yard care.

so were the accounts that you dumped too far away? Or were they customers that didn't want a complete package and only wanted yard mowed?
