Hey CutShort,
I'm a little south of you on StatenIsland(where 90% of everything is postage stamp sized). We pay $10/yard to dump and in order to dump you have to have a BIC plate(dumping permit within the 5 borroughs) which you have to apply and have a background check by the city done and the application fee alone is 1,500- then an additional 400 per truck that you want covered under the permit. So our prices are inflated to cover additional costs like this damn plate.

For what it's worth, we charge by the man-hour with a minimum 2 hours and make it a point to be in and out as fast as possible(which is why I steer clear of the $/Minute system).

Hope that helps.
