Where do you dump old decorative stone?

I seem to get alot of jobs where customers want their lava rock (or any other kind of decorative stone) removed and new stone put in...I have a dump that will take brush, leaves, grass etc...but they will not take stone. Where does everyone dump this stuff? Thanks for the help!

My Dad has a waterway where the spillway on his pond overflows. Any kind of rock, concrete, chunk rock, etc. I dump in there, hopefully someday I'll fill in all of the erosion, and then slow it down from getting any worse.

I have found there is always someone wanting to install rock and other clients that can't wait to get rid of it. If you can store it, likely you can find a use for it and charge accordingly, if not most concrete recyclers will have a place for it as mentioned.
