    Does any one out there use roll off services to remove dirt from a job site? we install two or three patios per week, our yard is filling up.

    alot of compaines take it to the dump they dont pay much to dump it because the dump uses it as the top coat because its not full of trash.

    Don't pay - just find someone that wants fill or just dump it at your local mulch supplier, they will screen it and sell it.

    We have a driveway guy come in and haul away excavated soil, install 2A and compact with a roller on bigger jobs, but most times we dump where it's free. Look for a place that sells topsoil exclusively they are usually willing to let you dump then they screen it and sell it back to you.

    I pay 250 for a 20 yard dumpster. Sometimes I can get rid of it for free, but not usually.

    drive around and find new foundations...most time they will take it when they backfill and set rough grade...if its topsoil they will take it even more. I just last week was backfilling a house that took a total of about 100 loads of dirt. the builder got it all for free because guys just needed to get rid of it.
