I moved it to another part of the garden thinking I was going to incorporate it into banked beds for wild flowers, but I've changed my mind now and want that area flat confused

I assume I don't want a skip but if not a skip then what?

Could you offer it on free cycle or ebay, as free if someone loads it themselves?

It's full of roots and bulbs so I don't think I dare --otherwise bloody good idea-

Grab lorry or many many trips to the tip

I know someone who had a swimming pool dug in their garden and had literally tons of soil and rubble to get rid of. Luckily for them, someone else had just bought a house nearby with a pool who wanted it filled in. Hey Presto, perfect solution!

Maybe ask around locally to see if anybody else nearby wants some to make a garden feature or to fill in a pond etc, you never know your luck.

Sell it! Topsoil is worth money!

Yes sell it or freecycle it.
