dump fee

I often use my truck and 16 ft. trailer to haul trash, lawn debris, etc. to landfill. What would be an approximate charge for the service, not including the loading fee. The dump fee is usually $45 - $60. It takes me 1 hour to get to the dump and 1 hour to return. The road is gravel and dirt. Sometimes very hard on my truck. It takes approximately 25 - 45 minutes to unload the dump. I am insured and bonded on both business and vehicle. This being for solo work.
thanks to all.

What is your hourly rate. That x hours worked = price (add dump fee).

Find the thread titled --Curious about price--- a few threads down. I posted there about the same thing. You have to know your costs.

Thanks to everyone for their posts. When you say plus 15%, do you mean add 15 % of everything else totaled up.
