DirtFill.com - Now in Atlanta Metro Area
Atlanta, GA (MMD Newswire) September 1, 2009 -- The website, DirtFill.com, connecting those with excess fill [fill dirt] and those who need it, is now operating in the Atlanta metro area. While DirtFill.com is new to Atlanta, the innovative website has a proven track record in other parts of the US.
Receivers can have clean dirtfill material delivered free, and contractors save money in search time and trucking to closer sites. "It's a win - win", said Kelby Bailey, VP, Marketing of Cut & Fill Inc, a 23 year old company that sponsors DirtFill.com. "DirtFill.com has been successfully serving our clients in Minneapolis - St. Paul for 10 years, Dallas - Fort Worth for 3 years and Seattle for the past 2 years", Bailey said.
The website is very simple and user friendly, but has a powerful search feature based on zip codes. Results are sorted by distance. "Use of DirtFill.com is free for anyone who wants to post listings needing fill dirt", Bailey said. Contractors can list and search for nearby sites for a small subscription fee.
Residents typically use dirt [soil] to fill a hole, build a berm, raise the grade of their yard or driveway or to fill a ravine. Others have more unique needs for dirt. Drey Bauer from Hastings, MN said, "I got 13 loads free for my motor cross track."
Bailey states that, "Moving dirt can be a huge expense on many jobsites in Atlanta," and emphasized that, "Given today's economy, contractors are even more focused on reducing costs."
DirtFill.com: Providing a New Way to Preserve the EarthDirtFill.com’s mission is to provide an invaluable resource for recycling dirtfill which saves fuel, generates less CO2 and protects the earth. They do this by helping contractors with excess dirtfill [fill dirt] find close by residents and other contractors that need the dirt.
“One person’s excess fill is another person’s new yard, berm or driveway base”, said Kelby Bailey, VP, Marketing of Cut & Fill Inc, a 20 year old company that sponsors DirtFill.com. Excess dirt fill is used for many other applications like a bike track, horse stables, and filling a pool or a ravine.
“A 14 year old boy gets a BMX bike track of his dreams while a contactor is saving fuel and CO2 emissions. You can’t get better recycling than that!” says Bailey.
Less trucking results in less fuel burned, and therefore less carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide emitted into the atmosphere. Shorter hauls also means less traffic, less noise and less odor. Bailey said, “We’re changing the way we live by changing the way contractors do business, while we protect the earth”.
Residents can join free, list the fill dirt they need, and have clean fill dirt material delivered free or at a low cost, while contractors save money in search time and trucking to closer sites. “The closer the site, the more the contractor will save or save his client. A medium-size company can save $2000 to $3000 per haul, while a large one can save tens of thousands. It’s a win win”, said Bailey.
The website is very user friendly, but has a powerful search feature based on zip codes. Results are sorted by distance. Anyone who wants fill dirt will always be able to post listings free of charge.
“DirtFill.com has been serving our clients in Minneapolis St. Paul, MN for 10 years”, Bailey said. Bailey emphasized that, “Contractors who use DirtFill.com will not only save money like our contractor clients in other metro areas, but they are helping to make our earth more green. And that’s good for all of us.”
Matchmaker, matchmaker, find me some fill
By Diane Mastrull
Philadelphia Inquirer Newspaper
In a filthy - quite literally - twist on Internet matchmaking, two entrepreneurs from Minnesota are now offering the Philadelphia region the services of DirtFill.com. The online site helps homeowners and contractors in need of [fill] dirt find those looking to get rid of it.
"It's kind of like [finding] a date - with dirt," Kelby Bailey said of the Web site business he operates with his father, Ron. DirtFill.com is not the only Internet-based service of its kind, but it was the first and is among the busiest, the Baileys said.
It grew out of a similar telephone-based company Ron Bailey started in 1986, born of necessity. At the time, he had a landscape architecture company and needed to find dump sites for his excess dirt fill.
"I found places the conventional way, which was just driving around in my car or pickup truck looking for sites," he said. That cost him fuel and something he, as a business owner, did not have the luxury of wasting - time. "The idea came to me: 'Gee, I would think there would be a telephone number I could just call.' There wasn't one. So we started one." By 1999, the Internet had emerged as the preferred method of communicating, as well as shopping, for scores of businesspeople and consumers. So Ron Bailey, after much consultation with his more tech-savvy son, formed DirtFill.com.
Here is how it works: Anyone with a need for dirt fill [soil] material can register on the Web site free and post an unlimited number of "wanted" listings.
Contractors looking to unload fill - no contaminated soil, please - list what they have and search for those in need.
The site's search feature is based on zip codes, with results sorted by distance. Contractors are free to call whomever on the list best fits their needs.
Why, after 10 years in the Twin Cities, three in Fort Worth, and two in Seattle are the Baileys extending DirtFill.com to the Philadelphia region?
Do they have an inside track on when the region's largely recession-silenced backhoes and front-end loaders will rev back to life?
"We base it on statistics that show you there's still building going on," Kelby Bailey said, declining to provide specifics. "It's not as strong as it was four years ago, but it's enough that we think we'll be successful there."
Among those hoping for a match is Jennifer Montello, 27, of West Chester. She and her husband, Albert, bought a home in April with a backyard that needs leveling. The statistical analyst stumbled upon DirtFill.com when she was Googling for excavators. Now, she said yesterday, she awaits a dirt connection. "There's got to be somebody out there that doesn't want their dirt."
