Despite many residents and even politicians doing everything they can to stop more landfills and dumps in Georgia, they are still an essential part of every state. Georgia itself has millions of tonnes of waste heading to landfills every year, and whilst some of them do have their problems, they simply can’t vanish overnight. That’s good news for you because it means there is likely a dump close by where you can unload your trash.

You’ll find them all across the states including areas such as Folkston, Atlanta, Dalton, Lyons, Columbus, Griffin, and many more.

Commonly accepted items at these sites include generic household waste, electronics such as television and computers, white goods like fridges, washing machines and other appliances, as well as yard waste and construction materials. If you want to trash hazardous materials, give them a quick call beforehand to see if they can take them.

Also, if you think your items can be recycled, why not do that instead – it’s far better for the environment.

Most of the dumps around Georgia are owned and operated by municipal councils. However, there are also quite a few for-profit private organisations that help the state with processing its waste.

Please be aware that depending on the type of trash you dumping and how much of it you’re getting rid of, you may be charged a fee. Again, give them a quick call to find out accurate pricing for you.
