What do you call soil from earthwork in construction— soil that may be remaining at some places, and that won't be used even after the construction project is finished?
I have two candidates: residual soil and surplus soil.
Which is the best for describing soil from earthwork in construction?
Or is there any other word?
Thank you for all.
I think I've described only one side of its characteristics.
In my case, the soil would be transported to another site or kept in stock yards for reuse.
I need the term which includes potential to be reused.
