Draining soil with gravel

You would rather work in the garden or on the construction site than to drive up and down with a trailer. Draining soil with stones can take up a lot of valuable time. Save time and effort; rent a container that you can use during the work. First you make a planning of the project including an estimate of the volume of material that you want to dispose of. Then you can check which container is suitable on Pay attention to the materials that you are allowed to dispose of and the contents of the container. For example, draining soil with roots is not the same as draining soil with pebbles. It is possible to have contaminated soil collected, but then you pay more for the separation of materials.
