Some publications put Illinois’ annual waste generation at more than 19 million tonnes a year – that’s a huge number. And despite many big organizations doing everything they can to help the state’s residents cut down on waste going to dumps and landfills, sometimes it’s just inevitable. Lucky for you, that means there are still hundreds of transfer stations, dumps, and landfills where you can unload your trash. With even more being approved in recent times as well.
You’ll find these sites in areas such as Chicago, Urbana, Wilmington, Rochelle, Rockford, Pontiac, Clinton, and many more towns and cities across the state.
Trash accept at these locations include common items such as generic household waste like papers, plastics, glassware, yard waste, white goods, and electronics. Some will also accept construction materials, scrap metals, tires, and other car parts. If you’re looking to dump something that may be hazardous, please make sure it gets to the right location as they can cause havoc for local councils unable to process them. Just give them a quick call to see if they can accept whatever you have.
