City offering heaps of free dirt
Psst, the City of Red Deer has dirt to pass on.
Specifically, it has about 220,000 cubic metres in the Queen’s Business Park it wants to give away.
“It’s leftover from the whole business park stripping and grading and storm retention pond development,” said Michael Williston, the city’s transportation engineer.
“We’re looking for higher volume users. We’re certainly looking at industrial or commercial users or even a farmer.”
Residential users aren’t ideal because it would take too long for the pile to go, he added.
The pile located on the park’s west side would take about 11,000 single dump truck loads to eliminate.
Companies or individuals wanting the soil can contact Andrew Phillips in the Engineering Department at 403-342 8114.
