Some parts of glacier contain alot of sediment, and some have very little, Why is this.

The wearing down of the landscape by glaciers is called glacial erosion. The glaciers are forces of nature. They can be thought of as a powerful river, picking up particles in their path, smoothing the land over which they travel, and dropping materials on their way.
So i think that depends on the terrain that it is traveling over and the amount of debris it is able to pick up.
