    I'm just starting out as a business. Up until now I just plowed for myself and friends. Last year we had more snow than I could pile up. If it happens again, I'll need to remove some of the piles to make room for more snow. When you have had to do this in the past, where do you take it? How do you get permission to dump it? Just trying to look ahead and trying to plan ahead.

    Take it to a field in a dump truck I believe, or I think some people have a pit where they dump it. Or if you've got some extra cash lying around, you can get a snow melter.

    My city has a few specified dump sites that they do not charge to dump at.
