What to do with excavated dirt?

I am planning on extending my patio with concrete pavers. I have done a lot of research so hopefully it will come out good. When I was calculating how much base rock I was going to need (12' x 10' x 4"), I realized that I am going to have a lot of dirt that I will need to get rid of, but how and where?

Thanks for any responses.

How & where in your yard/property can you get rid of it?

If you can't then you need to hire someone to haul it away

possibly build a small berm and plant trees on it to create a privacy screen or wind screen to an area of your yard.

Send it to me.

You could put an ad in the paper or on CL, and likely getsomeone to haul it away free.
