What does a soil removal service include?

Looking for soil removalists near you is easy when you do it via Airtasker. We’ll connect you with available and nearby soil removal services who can handle your task quickly and conveniently. That means you’ll have more time to focus on the other things on your to-do list, especially if this task is part of a gardening or construction project.

If you’re handling soil removal for the first time, here’s what you can expect from your removalist:

Soil pick-up

When you book a Tasker to do soil removal, they’ll come to your location with the necessary equipment. Tools can include bags, shovels, a truck, a skip bin etc. Just point to the pile of soil or the area, and the removalist will do the rest. If it’s a rather large area, there may be more than one Tasker who will handle the job. 

Whether it’s garden soil removal for a landscaping project or topsoil removal for a construction site, Airtasker can help you find a removalist who can take care of it. Here’s a tip: make your task post as specific as possible so that prospective Taskers can give you a more accurate quote. This also helps them prepare in terms of equipment and human resources.

Soil removal

Once the soil has been cleared and loaded into the truck/vehicle, the removalist brings it to your chosen removal site. This can be a landfill, recycling facility, or construction company. If you decided to give your excess soil to a friend who needs it for gardening, they could bring it there, too. Just mention this location in your task post. 

If you still haven’t chosen a “recipient” for your soil, the Tasker may be able to give you options. Since they handle other soil removal tasks in your town, they are most likely familiar with the places that could make use of your soil. Though this may vary from Tasker to Tasker, some may even know the local protocols for dumping dirt with rocks or handling soil that may be contaminated. 

Soil removal isn’t the only thing you can ask a Tasker to do. Airtasker can also connect you with people who can help you get rid of other rubbish, such as scrap metal or rubble. We also have removalists for other items like appliances. Taskers can help make your next cleaning or renovating project a bit more convenient.

Ed was exceptionally good to deal with . I choose my words carefully, as I've dealt with over 20 tradies in the last 6 months. Ed turned up early, has excellent communication skills and made sure that the task was undrestood well before he completed it as expected. He cleaned up afterwards and was pleasant to deal with the whole time. Many thanks.

Rubbish and soil removal


St Kilda VIC 3182, Australia

We need someone to quote for one or both of the following: 1- remove green waste: a couple of branches, some bamboo, ivy, a few short logs etc. Probably equivalent to one large trailer load. 2 - use a small bobcat or escavator to remove excess soil and some bamboo roots. The area around the driveway is about 30-50 cm above ground level (average) and about a 12 metre triangle. Mostly soil and some leaves. We will arrange our own hard rubbish collection for the few other pieces in the photo. Access is via a standard garage rollerdoor, so machine can't be too big. Door is visible in photo 3. - Due date: Before Friday, 21 April 2023

Glen was on time and communicated well. He manoevred the bobcat with great skill and care and went over and above to finish the task despite having some issues with the truck that slowed the day down. We are very happy with the result and will use Glen again.
