Dirt Disposal


Hi, I have dirt to dump from excavation. All dirt is clean from footings. I am in North Jersey (Millburn). Any suggestion on where to dispose it? Better yet, is there anyone around the area who need dirt and can haul it away? Thanks.

Re: Dirt Disposal


I would try listing it for free on craigslist, or even try calling excaving contractors to see if they want it.

I'll take a line from Killerdecks and say "put it back in the holes!"

Re: Dirt Disposal


Not to be a killjoy but around here if you take soil off site and dump it, you need to have the site it's coming from set up as a mine, with all the accompanying regulations.

Most places in NJ you dump dirt today you need certificate that it was tested and there is no contamination.

Drive around the area and see if they got any developments, some of them sometimes look for dirt.

Ask your excavation guy if he has a place to dump or knows someone who can take it.

Where does the dirt from a foundation go?

Can you dig a hole and bury it?

It has to stay on site. Maybe use it to grade around the foundation, maybe surface water flow modification.

Sure, or you can just pile it up as long as it stays on site.

Re: Dirt Disposal


Thanks everyone for the input. We don't have place in the site to place the dirt as we digged out a 10' basement.

Too bad you're an hour away, we need to fill in an old basement on a house lift we're doing
