As long as you have spread it out, then given enough time those things will break down into nutrients. Topsoil will contain all kinds of things and once they break down make a wonderful compost.

The local agricultural services in your country may be able to help you if you decide you don't want it on your property.

Here are some differences between using topsoil and potting soil in the garden: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/using-topsoil-and-potting-soil.htm
