Would anyone take them to get them out of the yard? Alot of the younger generation would just go to the store and buy them. Is there a market for them at a flea market or something? Alot of the older generation here still crack them and save them for cakes and pies through out the year. I would charge the same as leaf removal or your usual hourly rate. Your time is valuable whether its moving or cleaning a yard

Around here a market for walnuts. There's a company that buys them and they have buyers set up all over the state. Right now they are $12.00 for a hundred pounds after their hulled. Around here its an easy way to make some extra money if you've got time to pick them up.

Get a pull behind sweeper.They make quick work of walnuts (sweeps right into the hopper)and it's a nice accessory to have for fall cleanups.

I live out in the country and they jsut compost it, since they dont charge for curbside pickup of yard waste (if its in the big paper bags) they prob cant charge at the dump
