    Re: Compost around Ankeny

    Just put an ad up on CraigsList or something saying you'll have dirt/sod available for the taking on a certain day and I bet you get a couple responses...

    Solves the problem of getting rid of it, plus you don't have to haul it...

    Call the City of Ankeny - ask if they have a green dump area where people bring their yard waste. etc.

    I'd second this. I did this a couple of years ago when I put in a patio and I got rid of a lot of sod and dirt chunks. I literally just set it at the curb, threw up a craigslist ad, and it was gone within hours.
