    We pay $40 a ton for grass. Everything else we get charged by the yard, and it varies from site to site and for material. :)

    Varies by material, leaves are $8.00 per yard, brush is like $12.00 per yard, spring cleanup debris is like $14.00 per yard.

    In Cecil County yard debris (up to 3" in diameter), shrubs, limbs, leaves & grass are FREE.

    All other common trash/appliances& furniture is $52.00 per ton.

    Here I pay $30 a single axel dump load. It dont matter if its a one ton or whatever. My truck holds 26 yards, so its not bad at $30 a load. If you take it to the city dump its $40 per ton. Look around your area for a LCID landfill, they are usually cheaper than the city or county landfill.

    Come down here with PA plates and these necks will treat you like a red headed stepchild.:nono:
    They are rude as is to the actual residents. :rolleyes:

    I do some work up in Chester County (Church & Walnut St.'s in West Chester to be exact). I bring all my trash home with me, no sense in even trying to get rid of anything up there.
