    "By saying rubble I assume you want what we call mot or hardcore. Any builders merchant will be able to deliver some to you. Mot or hardcore comes in different sizes so depending on how severe the slope is will determine which size and how much you will need. If its not severe then 20mm to dust should be ok."

    "Rubble as hardcore to put under flags etc is available in any building merchants.

    Normally in the form of white stones/rocks in 1 tonne bags or 25 kg sacks"

    "Hi Sara,

    You can either buy type 1 to use to help level the area or have you tried gumtree, there are usually people getting work done that means they want rid of rubble.

    do not think you can buy on the net no further ideas, Regards Mike"

    "Hello,
    If you google, I believe that you find something. Sometimes you may find for donate, maybe you need a special transportation.
    I do not recommend put no organic rubble like plastic, glass, metal, etc.
    If you are not in rush you can provide your own compost with a composter.
    Good Luck!!!"
