Default sand/clay from my yard - useful?

Question is, what do I do with the excess sand/clay that I removed?
I do have plans at some vague point in the future to put in some
flagstone walkways, can I just save this stuff for that? If the
answer is "maybe," how do I evaluate it to see whether it's suitable
or not? If it's not, how the hell do I get rid of it? I've had a
hard enough time getting rid of the "good stuff" where I've wanted
to do so, I assume I'd have to pay someone to haul off simple fill,
but I don't know where to start.

There are always people looking for clean fill. I often see signs in
yards "clean fill wanted" You just have a logistics problem to get
it from your place to theirs. Try putting an ad in a local free
shopper paper and you may get some takers.

You'd think, but no. Even the topsoil, which I've been giving away,
has been a hassle with all but a few people. I'd put an ad on
Craigslist and people would want me to load and deliver 50 miles
away. All I want is someone to show up, help me shovel it into my
truck (that way they can see what they're getting and I won't be
completely worn out,) and then I'll drive it to their house, but
apparently that's too much work for some people...

Where are you?
