I new the the business, been doing it on the side with others for a year. Thinking about starting to do it next year. I did a job late this year for a new friend, who llc quit in oct. He want me to clean his 11 lawns. I bagged all the leaves up in bags and charge him $3.00 per a bag, with no take way fee ( do to the city will pick it up for free ). I had 85 bags so only charge him $255.00, i know that most likely under cut my self. But when i gave him the bill, he said it was to much and the other guy did not charge per bag, only $40 for a take away fee. I thought of what he said, but it does not make sense, no money to pick up the leaves. Just want to know what others in Illinois charge. I did charge $ 30.00 for each grass cut.
