View Full Version : Builders sand

12-05-2022, 02:15 PM
5/6 40KG bags of builders (fine sand). Remains after new wall build. Collection only. Since there is no interest in this I'm going to withdraw it on 31st Jan 2023.

Hi. If you still have the sand I'd love to take it.

Still here - 5 fertiliser bags full. I see your in Leopardstown. Would it be worth your while to travel all the way to Gowran (Co. Kilkenny) for them.? You will need something substantial to transport them. If you had a few fertiliser bags to split the present full ones, it would make your job easier.

Hi again,

I think I misunderstood just how much sand you have.

In your original posting you said you had 5 or 6 x 40kg bags, and I'd have no trouble getting that into the back of my people carrier.

But your message yesterday suggests you have 5 or 6 fertiliser bags, which if I'm not mistaken, each hold 500kg. Your two and a half tons of sand would need to be transferred into about 50 rubble sacks which would then requiree a load of trips back and forth.

If you have that much sand, I'd only be in a position to take some of it away (say 10 rubble sacks full) which I'm guessing would be no use to you.

Sorry for wasting your time if that's the case.

The original message was correct. There are 5 and a bit 40/50kg bags of the sand. I called them fertiliser bags because they once contained net nitrate /18-6-12 fertiliser/4okg bag once had coal/etc. I suggested that if each of the 5 was split half and half into another five 40/50kg bags then the 10 would be much easier to handle. You can let me know.

Hi and thanks for clarifying

I sent you a private message
