    am i the only fool that picks up the leafs with the mower, dumps them into cans, throws 8 cans up into the bed and dumps them out... repeating about twice per property?

    Where I dump the leaves charges me $25 which includes pulloff. I add this charge onto my fee for the leaf removal. I havent had people complain, they would rather not have 125 bags lined on their street.

    does the truck loaders condense the leafs that much?

    Im chargered per yard for disposal. we run our mower over them once with the bag on it which reduces them some. I just always figured why dump them in a pile by the curb, only to have to suck them up again. we just dump into cans... have like 8-10 cans with us, toss them up and a guy climbs in

    we also charge per can of debris, how do you guys factor your pring
