DIRT CHEAP ----------Was on my way into town and the State was cleaning out the road ditch less than a mile from me.
Stopped and told them I had a place to dump the dirt if they needed one.
They delivered me 3 truck loads.
Nothing like free dirt when you have a tractor !

As a contractor I love hearing these type of stories.

No such thing as a free lunch. Or dirt.

Noooooooo.

Cattails might like it and some exotic weeds too. ....

Salt is not a problem here but the trash that is in the road ditch and even mixed in the dirt is. Been there, matter of fact 5 years later still cleaning it up each time dirt is turned. kt ....

No salt problem here at least on the gravel roads. I used to get lots of free dirt form the county when they cleaned ditches. It did have some beer cans and a bit of crushed rock that the snowplows pushed in the ditch mixed in, but aside from that it was good topsiol that had washed into the ditches during a high water epesode. No free dirt anymore here, now they haul it to the county landfill and cover the layers of garbage with it, a zillion tons of good Iowa topsiol gone forever. Frank. ....
