Add to that, we provide volunteers to watch people dropping off their grass clippings, tree clippings, branches and the like. That comes to a mandatory 4 hours per person per year in our club. If you assume $10 per hour for the volunteer time, that comes to somewhere around four grand.
It's been working very well.
