Help on Providing a Bid to remove Wooden Garage doors

I got contacted to remove some wooden garage doors for a garage door company. They say they usually get 20-25 doors a week and they want me to pick them up weekly. I just don't know how much I should charge, it kinda hard to calculate volume on a skinny heavy wooden garage door. Anybody have any advice?

The one in the front is a single wide and the one in back is a 2 car wide. He already has a company picking them up now but they are very flaky and he's done with them.

Thanks for you help!Click image for larger version

They are quite heavy, all wooden. They would all be dropped off at the same spot at the business

What's your time worth? What is your equipment worth?

Find someone that will take them cheaper than the landfill if possible.

Nothing idiotic about it that is exactly what I would do with them. It looks like there is quite a bit of metal in each of those doors I would have a bon fire once a week with them and rake the metal out weekly wait till I had about a ton and make an extra 400 bucks what the hell is idiotic about that. Wouldn't take long to get that much metal off those doors if they all look like the ones in the picture. Sorry if you feel that is idiotic but just offering a solution to your dilemma its your prerogative to find the best one not criticize a viable solution.

By the way if that is what I was doing with them (burning them) I would charge 25 to pick up the single and 50 for the double bring a cordless saw with me cut them into 4x4 pieces and stick them in the bed of my truck or on my trailer whenever I was passing close to the location they are left at.
