      Hi

      I think you need crusher run, look in Yellow pages for it, possibly
      under waste transfer stations, or skip hire.

      Crusher run, is the stuff out of other peoples skips, so contains mostly
      crushed rubble, but often fag ends, coffee cups, coke cans etc ...

      Last time I got 20 tonnes in (8 years ago), it was just over 100 quid
      delivered, so basically the cost of haulage. Given you need so much, you
      can probably get a good deal. The nearer you can get a tipper lorry to
      the hole, the easier the job is going to be. I reckon you are looking in
      the region of 10 lorries full.

      The other thing to consider is quarry waste, or AKA scalpings, not quite
      as cheep, but often more uniform, and easier to handle and pack down,
      sort of depends whats going on the top I think.

      You can also get the stuff they scrape off roads, and if there is a
      local construction project you can call them direct for waste. I know
      when they fixed the A5 near me, you could call up the site and they
      would deliver - they had several thousand lorries full to get rid of.
