When one truck got back the operator asked the driver how much was the previous load.  He replied 85 and they high-fived. I thought no way 85 yards in a big tex trailer but who knows. ???
Maybe it was 85 dollars.

You can get 50 yds in a container 22.5 feet long by 8 feet wide by 6 feet high.

Depending on how it's packed a yard isn't equal. Some guys are hauling chips, others brush.

I've got to nose around more and see what's up.

The guy I talked with did have a company logo on his helmet but I didn't pay attention to what it was.

Our dump is "scaled" by weight.

I spoke with a guy pulling one of the trailers yesterday. He said they are not pulling to the county dump as they will not allow these rigs in. They are pulling to a open area the city owns, dumping there, then the city is mulching the debris and gets reimbursed by FEMA per ton. He gets paid $9.50 a yard. Didn't know what FEMA pays per ton. He also says that he has no control over how much gets loaded.
I drove by the yard and there are mountains of debris I'd say at least 40ft tall and separated by content. Tree debris, fence panels, metal etc.
