We've never been charged until last week for dumping ground, clean leaves. We have a curbside program and have never dealt with this before. The hopper holds 10 cubic yards and has hydraulic dumping. When we lift it, a brick of tightly compacted CLEAN leaves come out which the local transfer uses for mulch and they GIVE IT AWAY. I just don't get having to pay to dump the stuff they need, especially after several years and no changes in written policies.
