Thanks for the compliments guys. I am just curious if you guys have been getting any calls for JUST curbside pick-up, as opposed to a full fall clean-up. I have gotten quite a few calls from people wanting to know if I offer this service. I can definitely do it but when they ask for a price range I am clueless...never done it before?? Any thoughts? I told them minimum $50-$75 but i have to see the pile first

I have had a few already, Definitely look at he pile, but you are in the right price range for a small pile. The calls will be there in a couple of weeks. I did a lot of them last year.

We dont haul leaves, i have a guy that has a similar set up to you that picks them up for me. If the site is in the same town as he is in its something like $15.00 to show up and $3 a minute. Its never more than $40 and its worth every single penny
