Unless you’ve ever worked in the construction industry, you’ve probably never really thought much about earth materials – or “dirt,” in layperson’s terms. For contractors, developers, builders and municipalities, however, obtaining and getting rid of “dirt” is an ongoing challenge. You either need it or you have to dispose of it, and it can involve a lot of time, effort and expense.
Berlin resident Steve McLarty is out to revolutionize the way those in the industry handle earth materials with a new company: DirtFinder.com, based in Middlefield.
DirtFinder.com offers an easy, cost-effective way to find and dispose of earth materials, such as common fill, sand, screened topsoil, millings, clay, septic fill, gravel, stone and wood chips.
It’s free to browse the listings, which include the types of material needed/available and in what quantities, location, and contact information. Clients pay a fee for each listing, with discounts available for bulk listings. There are no membership fees or long-term contracts.
“I have been in the construction industry for decades. I know first-hand the challenges of dealing with earth materials. I knew there had to be a better way,” said McLarty. “Using DirtFinder.com eliminates some of the time and stress from this process, which usually includes a lot of phone calls, faxing and running around. It’s taking advantage of modern technology to deal with an issue that’s been around as long as people have been working on construction projects.
“You have 24-hour access to the site, so you can check for a listing or make a change anywhere, at any time,” he added.
DirtFinder.com offers new customers 50% off their first listing when the promo code H352 is used during checkout.
DirtFinder.com also offers a free blog on a variety of business and earth materials topics and is planning to start an e-newsletter.
