    Dump the gravel outside the COP where they have been dumping it.

    It means little unless you know what 'COP' is and who 'they' are.

    Re: Interpretation

    And if you know what "COP" is and who "they" are, then the sentence is fairly self-explanatory as long as you understand "dump".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm feeling peckish. If I had some ham, I could have ham and eggs, if I had some eggs.

    'Gravel' is a bunch of little stones.
