Dispose of excavated earth


What is excavated earth?

Excavated soil is soil excavated from the ground or building ground. Excavated soil often accumulates during the development of residential areas, road reconstruction or basement extension. Some of the excavated soil may contain small stones. There are different types of soil, such as sand, clay or loam, which can be disposed of via the container. The only requirement is that it must not contain any disturbing materials, such as typically branches or roots.

General notes

Filling: Containers may be filled to a maximum of the loading edge. The contents of the container must not exceed the side walls. At this point, independent raising of the side walls is not permitted. No liquid waste may be filled into the container.

Filling weight: Containers whose filling weights exceed a weight of 10 tons may not be transported. Please pay attention to the filling conditions and maximum weights. Overfilled containers cannot be transported safely and must be unloaded by the customer.

Access: Make sure that the vehicle has sufficient space and that access is possible without any problems. The minimum clearance height is 4 metres and the clearance width 3.50 metres. Since the container is lowered or unrolled to the rear, up to 15 metres of space is required. To facilitate manoeuvring, an additional length of 10 to 15 metres should be kept free.

Installation: A suitable surface must be available, i.e. it should be paved, level and stable. Sensitive ground is not suitable to be driven over by a truck, as it can otherwise be damaged by the heavy weight. Furthermore, a container cannot be lifted over fences/walls. Only a maximum height of 30cm can be exceeded.

Permission: If you want to place the container in a public space, you are responsible for the general duty of road safety. Even if we support you in this and help you apply for the necessary official placement permits, you are still responsible.
