    Just out of curiosity what are you city boys paying for disposal fees? We can burn whatever we want here so limbs etc get burned on my property and grass and whatnot would go in the pastures for cows to eat.

    I bet yall's insurance is higher too?? I pay 600 a year for the truck and 800 for business

    Dump fee is charged by the pound here. On average I can empty my dump trailer for about $25.00. Insurance is about the same as yours

    Dump fees here are at $50 per ton, minimum of $10, so that is 25 cents a pound after the minimum of $10 or 400 pounds.

    I only dump in bag form. A standard 33 gallon trash bag is $1.50 at a local refuse center. Things have to be separated though, leaves in one bag, sticks in another, grass in another. We can wait until Saturday's to dump at the city disposal yard for free but it cant be in bags. City is in a crunch and there is talk the city disposal yard may be one of the cuts, I dont think it will fly around here though.
