Oh boy, that oil and stone might be considered hazmat. You need a dump truck to do this kind of work. Have you done any of this before?

I think you might be in over your head. Here is my .02. Cost of soil, bobcat rental, disposal fees and dumpster added together. Multiply by 4. I'm sure somebody will say I am light. What are you going to do with this dirt slab?

its $450 + tax for a 20yd dumpster, they get rid of the debris. I just fill it, and replace the driveway with top soil and seed
