    Just curious what guys are charging for leaf removal? I sold my vac 3 yrs ago because people only expected to pay $50 or $75, I've read some take them for free because they have a new vac. To me this is blood money, hard work. What are you guys getting for this?

    $100.00 is my Minimum Charge

    It really depends on how far I am from the area landfill. Usually I add an hour of time into my estimate for hauling them away, and $20.00 for the dump fee. I generally charge $45.00 per hour for leaf clean up.

    $45.00 an hour would not cover my dumping fee's.
    Around my area I have to travel about 20 mins to dump and it is $6.00 a Yard for just leaves.

    we take our leaves to our farm and we push them in with the cattle waste when the clean the holding yard.... which it gets big piles of leaves at times it makes great waste to spread on the fields

    This would give you 20 there, 20 minutes back, and 20 minutes to dump. 5 yds. = 30. This would give a $75. haul fee at this rate. I charge close to the same, but then I don't have to pay a dump fee. I dump on my own property. I still charge the going rate, though. This is just incorporated into the cleanup charge.
