How to charge for mulch?

What do you guys charge for mulching and whats included?

I figured from past threads:

$65/yard
$20.00 Delivery Charge
$50.00/hour

Let me know your input thanks!

For me, it would depend on the type of mulch. The cost averages $40-70 per yard depending if it's play ground,pine,cedar,hemlock etc. $25 delivery charge $50 per hour labor.
