    The dump site we use charge the same for "sod" as they do for grass clippings ($11.00/yard) i would mark it up to about $20.00 a yard, then charge the client an hourly rate with our skid steer/operator to remove the sod from the ground and load the trucks.

    sometimes, we wont even remove the sod.
    we sometimes just till it back into the soil, add some nice topsoil smooth the ground out, and resod.

    My first question is why did the sod die?

    If it was a fungus or lack of water by the homeowner, or poor grading, or........

    Next question is how big of an area?

    Most time we don't remove the sod we just till it under, regrade and reinstall. If you don't have a problem with fungus then thats what I would do, heck even with a fungus thats what I'd still do but I spray a fungicide first.
