    I try to average $40 per hour for clean ups some days I can average $55 to$60 per hour if I get then done sooner than I expected. Tomorrow I have a clean up that will cost the customer $650.00 bucks and I expect it to take me 10 hours, I estimated out of this $650 that $100 is for the cost of dumping debris, of course the customer doesn't need to know that In reality the dumping cost will be more like $50.00 as far as leaves go I get charged $10.00 per truck load to dump them so I in turn charge my customers $25.00 per truck load for the dump cost and I generally tack on $35.00 for the labor..... or $60 bucks all together.

    Hello fellow Minnesoda Lco. I have been doing alot of spring clean-ups this spring, I charge atleast $100.00 per yard. We are a 2 person crew and use a 52" Exmark with a Ultra Vac, and back pack blowers. We make atleast 100.00 per hour, most jobs take less then an hour. It all depends on what eq. you have. I just try to figure out what it's worth to the home owner to have the job done. It would take them all day to do a job I do in an hour. Most home owners don't mind paying the money to have the day off.

    I mulch the leaves with my Dixie, so what I usually do is pick up all branches on lawn and then blow out all leaves from beds onto the lawn. I charge a $1 a minute for this, then regular price for cutting (mulching) the lawn.
