    Here is one of the Hillsborough County Dump Sites that I use a couple of times a week. Makes life so easy, every city should have a site like this. I see alot of guys on here complaining they dont have anywhere to dump. I am glad we dont have that problem...

    i have one here in Goshen, IN. One dump is $10-15 and there is one on the NE side of Indy as well for $15 a dump. Very nice, quick, and easy. Not that I wouldn't want my own dumping area on a big piece of property of mine that everyone could come to my property to do the same thing. lol.

    Those 2 places don't judge by weight. Goshen it is ethier pickup bed ($10) or dump truck or trailer ($15). They also allow grass clippings the same way. The place in Indy is $15 no matter what weight or size. For both just remeber NO TRASH, just plant material.

    We have the same type sites down here also. The biggest problem I see is the useable material after grinding. It's gotten steadily better since 2004, where the material was so contaminated with bits of plastic bags, nails and such, because of mixing construction material or pallets. In the last couple of years its much better, but would use the premium grade of reuse mulch that has gone through 2 cycles of grinding, to avoid the large chunks of wood and masses of stringy palm fronds that adds more time than it's worth to install and still is not aesthetically pleasing for most high visibility sites.

    Yup we got a bunch of those all over town. Scrap yards too, bring in a truck load of steel or aluminum and make some decent money.
