The simplest way to get rid of gravel is to rent a dumpster. The good thing about renting a roll-off dumpster is that you can load many materials as it makes the disposal process more effective than dragging all your rubbish to the landfill.

If you want to rent a dumpster, all you have to do is call and schedule a transportation time that’s convenient for you. Doing so will ensure you have sufficient time to collect your rocks at your convenience and call when it’s ready for pickup. Disposing of gravel this way saves you a lot of time to transport and dump the rocks.

Benefits of renting a dumpster

  • Longer rental period
  • You don’t have to be home for pickup
  • Guaranteed timely disposal of your gravel

Leave a ‘free’ sign out

Another great way of getting rid of gravel is to leave a ‘free’ sign outside your home. The free sign will ensure that people can easily access your home, and if anyone requires gravel, they’ll knock on your door. Don’t be surprised at how many people will show interest. Remember to include your contact info on the sign to enable people to get in touch with you.
