Up until this last year, the municipality I live in did curbside pickup of leaves on certain in town streets in the fall. They have since purchased a fancy new vac truck for cleaning catch basins and don't want to use it on leaves anymore...so they won't! This sounds like a great possibility for me. I'd like to offer curbside pickups to replace the town service but I'm not sure exactly how to charge or market this service. I'll most likely send a targeted postcard mailing in early fall when the leaves start to change. Any ideas on what the card should say? What has worked for you? What about some pricing guidelines for this type of service? Also, since I'll be purchasing a truck loader to aid in this expansion, how do you guys generally price your fall cleanups considering this type of equipment? In the past I've been a rake and tarp guy and charged accordingly. I am looking seriously at a Billy Goat HTR Debris Loader. or something similar if I find a good deal on something used before fall. Is this an adequate machine for this type of work? How fast can it suck up a pile of leaves, wet or dry?
