what to do with it? Got four 75 lb. bags in my pickup truck left over
from winter. No use for it. Any ideas besides throwing it in the trash
bin @ the dump? Am starting to use truck regularly and don't want to
rip bags/ make mess and the extra weight can't help mileage... but now
while I have no use for them I also have no place to store until next
winter where the plastic won't degrade in the sun and/or be at risk of
Trying to think of some way to get rid of them, but new are so cheap
that I'm thinking that most people that *need* sand just go to stoneyard
and buy it...
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
Give them away on Freecycle? Give them away on Craig's list? When
your block has a yard sale, give them away then?
Put a note on your work or church bulletin board or newsletter?
Put a sign at the front of your yard? Take an illegal advertising
sign with an unprinted side, reverse it, and make your sign with an
indelible marker. IF it will help, use one facing each direction and
one facilng the street.
Have your own yard sale and give it away then. Put FREE on a sign in
front of the bags.
I always find a use for the pickup bed sandbags. Find a place to
store them, or one of these days you will be running to the store to
buy a bag of sand to level patio blocks, mix with garden soil, level
the bottom of a small concrete form, etc, etc.
Have you watched the movie "The Great Escape", or even the much earlier
"The Wooden Horse"? As they walked around the exercise area or tended
their vegetable garden, the prisoners disposed of the soil from the
escape tunnels by surreptitiously releasing it from bags concealed in
their trouser legs. Using a similar technique, your local park might
provide a suitable place for dumping the sand. ;o)
Alternatively, you could dig a hole and bury it.
Pick up some free ubiquitous "white bucket"s and store it in there.
Be easier to handle next year anyhow.
Put them on the curb with the $5 price sign - they will disappear in
sort order. "Free" sand sign may not work :)
Any public beaches near you? Sneak it out there one bag at a time,
draped over your shoulders, and cut a corner of the bag as you walk up
and down the beach.
But seriously- is it the rough nasty stuff, or the sanitized stuff like
they sell for sandboxes? Anybody with small kids always needs to top off

"I know you won't believe it, but my employer would likely miss me
greatly if I left, even though I haven't worked in an engineering
capacity for something like six years now."
Same thing you'd do with a broken refrigerator, used motor oil, or
half-filled paint cans.
Leave 'em in a schoolyard during the dark of the moon. We're pretty close
right now, the new moon was June 1st.
