Default concrete disposal in/near Grand Rapids

After I finish up the current project, I want to tear out the cement patio and replace it with some nice pavers and a fire pit. The problem is figuring out what to do with the old concrete. Anyone have any great ideas on how to dispose of about 800 square feet of concrete?

We used to take broken concrete to a place in Holland on Chicago Dr. just west of LKQ (U-Wrench-It) on the North side of the road. Not sure I have ever seen a name or sign out of what the place is called though.

Hide it under a load of scrap metal and take it to the recycler.

Well after some new data, it seems there is only 300, not 800 sq feet. Whoops, overestimate of the week :)

I'll see what type of rebar is sticking out of it once I pull it up and let you know Jeepjumper. Thanks for the other ideas as well.

does it have rebar in it? Some excavating companies will take it, crush it and use it for base on driveways/fill.

Bring me a case of beer and you can dump it in my jeep playground if you don't find anywhere else. As long as there is no rebar.

Brewers recycling, you can just swing in there when ever and toss it out on the pile, no rebar though.
