actually where i am at theres some cool earthy people, its pretty aware when it comes to at least some stuff like this, which is probably why theres at least the good option of the one place that charges 9 dollars per truckload, but does turn it into compost and soil on their own and resells it. the other place was weighed and it was like over 20 dollars to dump a big truckload. the landowner pays that not the company, so they dont neccessarily have any direct motivation to seek out the best places....but it would bring the overall cost to the landowner down.
i would think the landscaping companies would want something really simple, like the spot is designated before hand with a sign that says drop here, and could be accessed on a moments notice.
i would think youre right they dont want to go way out of their way or have to spend time trying to contact someone, figure it out or do any more to secure the arrangements. you would have to make it really easy for them, and have it always available, or somehow work it out so that it doesnt seem weird to them.
