Let me think....
It's not one resource, I count ca 15 piles, some are clearly different,
others look the same but I can't be sure. It's not the material I am
interested in, it's the facility.

My understanding of stockpile is that it means like a reserve of some
material you keep in case a shortage develops. Like salt for icy roads.
This appears to be an active site for exchanging all kinds of materials.
Like sand from the river bed to be reused for all repavement jobs in the
municipality, that kind of thing.
