    Whatever it costs you to tip it including your own costs, time, labour, vehicle costs ect...

    It's not really a one size fits all thing.

    • Sorry Craig but I'm wondering in £££ !! At the moment I'm charging £40 for a bulk bag filled up, is that outrageous, to cheap or about where others are?  It's a real grey area for me cos a bag can be rammed or very loosely packed

      • I think Craig's answered you really............. if it costs you £20 tipping fee and it takes you an hour, £40 seems fair enough...................  if you tip it in the next lay-by on the way to the next  job, it's a bit pricey:) 

        • Graham, I get rid of waste in my garden as it's large so that saves me the tipping fee however I certainly don't want to pass that saving onto my customer - I want to charge the elusive going rate!!

          • You do realise you should have a transfer licence for doing this and what ur doing is illegal and massive fines
            • I do have a transfer license and if you are referring to me disposing of garden waste in my garden, why is that illegal?
              • You did well to get a transfer licience we couldnt get one for our yard when we had a skip lorry

              if you want to get technical about green waste removal then all of you that use your clients green wastes bins are "breaking the law" as set out by your local councils, those bins are specifically for the clients that own them, they produce the waste then they bin it, we are not meant to use them as professionals, feel free to ask your local councils....

                However my local council do not supply a garden waste bin as part of the normal waste collection service, you have to book and pay for it as an additional service.

        £40 for a bulk bag sounds very steep to me. Very steep.

        For 15 quid ish, you can get someone to collect and take it away. I mean waste removal men.
