    Wolf I can pack it fairly well sitting on top of the pile. The 315's bucket is small (42") so it will easily fit inside the trailer to pack the debris down.

    On this job the debris went to 4 different landfills, not that it was planned that way. The 100 yard went to their landfill and the truck had a 1.5-2 hour turn around depending on traffic. 20 min drive one way and 20 min to push it out. The reason why the waste went to 4 different landfills was the hauling we did in 30CY cans. We were pulling a few 30's out off the job while also swapping some 30's for other customers (never want to run without a box). So it went like this - drop me a 30 and I load it up. If we had a swap in the north eastern side of town, the can I loaded went to a landfill in that area, drop my empty and pick up the customer's, going back to the same landfill since it was closest and on to the next drop. I pulled a few at the end of the day that went back to our yard to be dumped at the county landfill a few miles away the next morning and on the route again.

    Pulling a few 30's out while the house is coming down works pretty well depending on where we are swapping other boxes. I can load a 30 in 15 mins or so taking time to get a full packed can. If we have a swap close to my demo, the driver brings me the empty and I live load it. Take that can to the closest landfill and then take that can to swap out the customers. Dump that can and bring it back to me. That gives me some time to take down more of the structure and sort metal but also removing debris and making some revenue servicing our other accounts.

    Man, I am impressed. That is really smart of you to figure out how to get the 30s out to other customers, and generate more revenue, while you are swapping out the boxes you are loading with demo debris. I don't know how you figure it all out, but it sounds like you are making good money keeping the boxes in circulation like that.

    Nice going, man.

    Thanks D5G. B'ham is not a large city, the metro area is close to 1 million folks. As far as the burn jobs, they are the ones that have come up here lately.:beatsme These are insurance jobs where people actually have money to pay.:rolleyes:

    Wolf, I don't do it alone - credit goes to a very good general manager of the roll-offs who makes it smooth (and also drives).:thumbsup We are a small company(s) who are working our ass off to make it through these tough times, money is very hard to come by.

    CM - do you happen to know the struck capacity of that 42" 315 bucket?
