    So i'm located in central jersey and I was curious when you other northeast guys were going to start your clean-ups. In the past i've started the first or second week of march but this year the march weather isn't on my side. So what are you guys doing?

    I heard Westfield/Clark area is pretty good for work and money.They still pickup leaves curbside I believe also.We do 80% of our work in Edison and 20% in Warren where I live.I hate to start too early because they get messy again before first cut and sweetgums some hang on depending on the year. Were close, so if you ever run into a problem, pm me.

    Yea they still pick up leaves curbside....... thank god! I found out this year from someone from the dpw that westfield alone generates 50,000 cubic yards of leaves each fall, CRAZY. Edison is a nice area to work in, one of my clients down here has a house in warren and wants a new landacaper, she said it seems like all the guys around her quality sucks. I believe this would be a high end account. I would take it except i'm not going to warren for one account. If you want it let me know.
