Out of the 3 garage floors removed, only the 2nd one or one in the middle had the obvious bottles laying around, because of this I only dug around the dirt from this one. when they remove these Garage Floors they usually only dig down 2 feet, 3 at the most. Usually this is not deep enough to hit the privy's because usually the good stuff in a privy is at the very bottom which is usually 4 to 7 feet in Michigan. Anything in the top 3-4 feet could just be part of the fill dirt to fill the privy in. Trash pits are usually more wider & shallow like 3-4 feet deep. Probing around the other 2 may reveal a privy but I prefer to probe for Privy where the ground has not been disturbed & these usually will have a old abandoned burnt down crack house on the property.
