    How much would you guys charge a regular customer to remove one wheelbarrow of chipped up asphalt while you were there on your regular day to cut their lawn?

    The best customer is the one you already have, and doing a small favor for free will put the customer on your side, boost your reputation etc., so $0.

    Well I do have to dump this stuff somewhere too though. This is my first year and I don't know how much it costs to dispose of this stuff or even where to dump it. I have a partner who wants to charge him $30 to take it and I was thinking $10 or $15.

    Or, better yet, tell them you know where to dump it, then dump it in their back yard. LOL

    if i'm already there and it doesn't take any extra time, i'd probably do if for free too. mjs is right, small favors go a long way. the customer will remember.
