    there's a new development just beginning in the middle of where 90% of my customers are. I went over to the construction guys last month, asked them if I could dump leaves in the lot where the dozers were pushing over trees, topsoil etc and they said totally fine with the clean fill. I went back the next day at lunch with a case of beer and a bunch of burgers, and have been dumping leaves there for free ever since. some of my customer let me dump them in the woods too

    I dump at our city forestry recycling dump. It cost $8.00 per truck load no matter how high the load is. Same price for grass clippings.

    I dump at a mulch place, about a half mile from my house. Actually, I think just about everyone around here does. The place is mad busy right now. $5/load, any size load.
