    I am always trying to find the most professional way to word things. You know...'Clients' instead of 'customers'.....'Here's your invoice' instead of 'here's your bill'....'turfgrass' instead of 'lawn'.... 'irrigation system' instead of 'sprinklers'. ...whatever.

    Anyway, I am stuck on the word 'Dumping'. Often when I am writing up a proposal or an invoice one of the items I am listing is 'dumping fees'. For instance, say you do a one-time pruning job and remove a few small trees. Well, you have to haul that stuff off to the dump or recycling yard. And there are fees associated with that. So what is the best way to describe that?

    'Hauling costs' ?

    'Recycling costs' ?

    The word 'Dumping' just sounds wrong.
