It’s spring time and time many people will begin dirt and or concrete excavation/removal projects. The first thing you need to do is call 811 (USA) underground service alert. Underground gas pipes electrical lines need to be located and marked properly! If you are going to haul away the dirt/concrete yourself, you should understand how much the dirt/concrete actually weights. A cubic yard of dirt or concrete weights over 2,000 lbs. This is the in dump truck or out of the ground weight, not in the ground weight. Your figure a cubic yard of dirt or concrete by using 27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard or 2,200 lbs.

Example – if you are digging a 3x3x3 foot hole for a new tree (which is 1 cubic yard), this is a ground measurement, out of ground and in dump truck. This amount almost doubles so be careful, your best bet is to call an experienced dirt/concrete company with the proper equipment such as a front end loader and dump truck to take the dirt concrete away to the proper dumping location or landfill.
