    Got a guy who lives about 20 min from me, and asked me to take his trash to the dump...by trash I mean, tree limbs, shrub cuttings stuff like that, he said it would all fit in the back of my Dodge Ram, but I told him I would let him know. I have never just done this for someone but he is a decent client, how much would one charge for a hauling of this stuff?

    Thanks in advance!

    I use a 5 yd dump trailer and I get $50 per trip plus dump fees, and at that I only fit it in on a low day. Hope this helps

    This is simple go over there and tie up the limbs for trash pick-up. If it fits in the back of a pick-up it can be bundled/bagged in less than 30 minutes. Doesn't you city pick up trash?
