No man-made articles of any kind in it. Dirt, sand, grass, cow manure, etc. is all OK. I would just dump it in my field and spread it around.

You can bring it too me in Denton as another option if you like. Just as long as it has no trash or concrete/rebar.

You can take it to the North Texas Water District transfer station on Ridgeview Drive.
Thats were thet take all the yard clippings and tree/shrub branches and compost and turn it all into mulch and sell it back to citizens. The dirt can be used for their topsoil that they make and sell there.

ETA: You hve to take a water bill to prove that you are resident however, they don't charge you.

How big of a yard do you have? Why not just evenly spread it over your yard? Fill in low spots, etc.? Or have you already done that and this is the excess?

I live on 5 acres, and you never want to get rid of good soil. I just spread it around. This time of the year I wish I had your dirt disposal problem. I would just go fill up another hole.

If you want to bring it to Fort Worth, You can dump it on my dads land. He has 6 acres of pasture that has a few low spots in it.

I can almost garuntee if you put in ad in craigs list and list it as free you will have a ton of emails from people wanting to come pick it up and remove it for you.

Now there is a great idea.


Hmm....one of my coworkers, he lives in Rowlett. He is addicted to Craigslist, and he does need some topsoil.....and he has no truck.

Throw it over the fence, any direction. If you have not scared the neighbors from talking to you yet, this may not work. Save the dirt until there is no more eye contact, then toss it.
