    I just got a truck so this opens up the world of being able to dump things and pick up mulch and such. How much do you guys pay to dump a pickup full of wood?

    I have 4 6' arborvitaes (70lbs each?) and about 200 lbs of old plywood and 2x4s

    How much would you guys typically pay for this?

    10yd truck full usually runs me $15-20 depending on how full we stuff it. But we compost 90% of the debris we bring in, haven't been to the dump in 2 years

    Big load would probably be $150 at our dump but if you take it to a mulch grinde place not more than $30.

    Leaves are free. Area towns around me all have different pricing for different things. For brush it's only $5 for a pickup truck load but if it's in a dump truck with 1 to 2 yards it's $20 or so and in a dump trailer it's $30 or $40, even if it's the same amount...don't make much sense but that's how it goes. Getting rid of stumps and larger wood (over 3 inch diameter) is difficult and any type of demo debris is downright costly. I have areas out back for light brush/clippings, leaves and grass.
