Are you asking about like a maxxi-dump that you pull behind your truck, or a semi with a dump trailer?

Re: Is there really money in trailer dump work?

Well it all depends on what you have for work. We have one and only used it a total of 1 month last summer. A lot of guys from mass haul waste (trash) up to norrigwalk (sp) maine to the landfill. If you could get a salt contract or something like that in the winter it would not be to bad. But it's just like any trucking it has its good weeks and bad weeks. The key is being diversified and being able to haul what ever people want you to haul.

Re: Is there really money in trailer dump work?

I see the same thing around here seems like there are a lot of dump trailers running around, but a lot of them I see are the bigger outfits like PA Landers, Lopes and Childs.

Ones I have noticed with all the decked out custom trucks are the "Contaminated Soils" guys, like SRS (beautiful show quality fleet) and these guys, Clean Slate Environmental, Inc.


Could probably be quick easy money now with snow removal out of Boston and sand/salt hauling but totally a seasonal thing and probably tricky to get your foot in the door at this point.
