Our bin men are quite good and take just about anything as long as it's in a bin bag and it isn't too heavy.

You could wash it if it's gravel or coarse sand, rather than a substrate that has lost it's substance and then dry it in the sun, ready for another scape one day or to sell :D I used an old bed sheet on the patio in full sun and spread it thinly, turning it from time to time to make sure it was all dried and then rebagged it :D Waste not want not ! ;)

Mix it into your garden or even potting compost in pots Clark. Sand and gravel will improve the drainage so good for plants that don't like it too soggy. All the organic material in there (dirt) will break down and even help feed the plants too!
