TBH I'm surprised no one wanted the dirt.
I was thinking the same thing.

You could also get a big tarp to line the bed. Fill it up and once you've shoveled out a bunch at the dump, pull the tarp out with the remainder.
Good idea.

It's a pretty small quantity for fill. Top soil might have been another matter.

Do you have a vehicle that will pull a dump trailer? If so, that would be the way to go. Lower loading platform, and push a button to unload. Would probably be about the same cost to rent as the truck you are renting.
Plus, that's atleast three pick up loads of dirt by volume and that little half ton isn't going to handle a full load of dirt, so figure on atleast 5-6 trips

No I dont.

All done. Half a day of back breaking work and it's all done:

We needed a bit of a running start and effort to get the barrow up the ramp but it was doable. Way better than shoveling it anyway

First time I drove a pickup truck (F350)... Amazing
