As this referenced previous question says, anywhere the truck can get to - or even further if you use a contractor with a bobcat or loader or such.

Presuming you meant who can do this for you - the Search the List category is Mulch and Topsoil for growing media, Stone and Gravel for any other stone product, or many Excavation contractors for "unclassified" or "common" fill, but be careful about those that you do not get loads of land clearing debris, demolition debris, or excavated soil from a hazardous materials cleanup job of contaminated with petroleum or chemicals.

And when talking to contractors, tell them the volume of material you want, not a "truckload" - which might range from less than a cubic yard to as much as around 30CY depending on truck size. Also discuss where it is being dumped - whether a loaded truck can reasonably dump where you want it. And if dumping on lawn, be sure not to water it for a week or so before delivery, and make sure they are going to do a confirmation call BEFORE picking up the load to confirm that the lawn has not gotten soaked in rains or thaw. Not only to avoid deeply rutting your lawn, but also because loaded dump trucks cannot handle more than the most minimal slopes on grass - just spin holes in the lawn.
