Good luck with that unless you are awful close to a cheap gravel pit - because while you could probably a load of general fill for about that amount (assuming you are talking a full 10-14 cy dumptruck worth), that would most likely be without the delivery charge. Alternatively, that might cover the delivery charge but not the material itself. I would expect you are talking about $150-200 for a truckload of general fill - andbe sure you specify maximum size and if it has to be free-draining or not when you order, otherwise you could get a load of boulders and cobbles or a truckload of swamp muck. Here is a prior response that might help with typical costs - though in your area I would expect you to be in the lower part of the range - http://answers.angieslist.com/per-tru... Your best bet to get a load of unclassified fill (and be sure you are not getting construction demolition debris or contaminated fill from an underground storage tank removal job or such) for that amount would be to find a contractor who is excavating fill and hauling it to disposal - maybe a subdivision being built where they need to get rid of the basement excavation or utility trench excavation material because it is unsuitable for either structural backfill or topsoil. Your Search the List category would be Landscaping for very small quantities (a ton or two per load), or Excavating for full dumptruck loads. BTW - normal truck sizes - about 1 cubic yard (loose) for small landscaping fill haulers, 8-12 cy for normal dumptrucks, 15-25cy for tractor-trailer sidedump or bellydumps.


Of course, pay attention to how they are going to get to where you wantit dumped - both with respect to being able to back in there (turns and clearances and slopes - especially on grass if having to back up a slope), and with respect to how deep a rutting you are willing to accept in your yard from driving a loaded truck on it.
