Dirt Special Instructions For small amounts of clean, uncontaminated dirt, like a small flowerbed for example, and if it is no more than 10 lbs, it may be disposed of in your green waste cart. However, dirt is excellent re-use material so there might be a spot where it can be used, for example, to even out holes, or maybe a neighbor might use it for a new landscape. Often local farmers welcome extra dirt for their off-street roads and fields. Consider reusing instead of disposing.

Ways to Reuse Backyard Projects Keep leftover dirt to use for future backyard projects, such as raised garden beds or fixing low spots in your yard. You can store dirt in a few sturdy storage bins — just keep the bins out of the elements and direct sunlight. Give It Away Friends or neighbors may be in need of dirt for their own home projects. Consider posting your dirt on a local reselling website or app such as Nextdoor, Craigslist, Freecycle, or OfferUp. You can also try DirtMatch, an online dirt exchange connecting people who have dirt with people who need dirt. Give to a Landscaping Company Some landscaping companies need extra dirt, and may take your dirt for free. Some landscaping companies may charge a small fee to accept your dirt.
