We turn it to help compost it better. I also water it from time to time. I have added some sand to it, very little. If you are sloping build a little dam out of wood and it will stop it from washing away. I am only building a work office there, an open garage. Nothing to live in.

As you guys know illegal dumping will cost you big $$$$ if you get caught.

Any ideas? or Where do most of you dump?

Well if you lived out in the country like I do I can't drive because I'm only 12 so I get my lawnmower and drive around with my little utility trailer and go in the backyard have a camp fire and burn the sh*t. when I dethach in the spring I burn the dead grass and nobody cares in my neighborhood.
