How do you pass on the fee for lawn and yard debris removal? Most of my jobs I can leave it on the property, in the back. Some I have to bag the leaves, pinecones, pine needles, small sticks, shrub trimmings, ect. and carry them offsite to a landfill. The landfill is on average a 40 minute round trip and a $15.00 a ton flat rate plus my physical labor of emptying the trailer. I now charge $45 to haul away a trailer full but no charge for just a couple of lawn bags full for my year long contracts. I accumulate the bags and take them al at once.
