moving and disposing of dirt.

what is the best way to remove a small amount of dirt off a property? i have a truck and a trailer that is loaded. what i have have done is wheel barrel it to the truck then shovel it into my trash, or i have used bags. there has got to be a easier way. i have to install a 50ft french drain soon

Use it to fill the trench back in? Maybe fill in some low spots on the property.

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

A few wheelbarrows loads into the turf will disappear quickly... we do this all the time to level turf, when there's time,, and in this case it seems to be the best use of time...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
