    say you have either a regular residential account or a multi townhouse commercial property and they ask you or leave a garbage can or a bag of leaves. Do you guys charge if its not in the contract? if so how much per bag /can?

    I will tack on a little extra if the leaves and stuff is in bags, I try to not be a trash truck, but for a good customer I will take some bags of leaves. Only trouble with bags is that I have to empty them into my truck so I can take them to the dump, no bags allowed in the compost pile! I think the charge is just relative to the PITA factor. if you are already there and it's not much trouble then a few bucks make it ok. If they want a special trip made then you have to do some figureing, or say you will get it another day...

    I hate doing that kind of stuff too..
