Indiana has hundreds of transfer stations, recycling centres, garbage dumps, and landfills. The state is also ranked second in the whole country for the amount of trash they bury underground, putting millions of tonnes of waste in landfills every year. While that may not be best for the environment, it’s a solution we currently have. That’s good news for you if you’re in need of a landfill because there’s likely one close by.

You’ll find landfills and dumps all across Indiana in areas such as Greencastle, Indianapolis, Pimento, Vincennes, Bloomington, Scottsburg, and many more locations.

Some of the most common items accepted at these locations include construction rubble, glassware, plastics, papers, yard waste, household goods, car parts, and more. Remember to consider recycling items instead of hauling them to a dump if you can. Also, if you have other materials that could be potentially toxic or hazardous, double check that they are able to process the waste safely.

As mentioned before, there are plenty of dumps in Indiana, with some even expanding in recent times to keep up with demand. Most of the sites are municipal dumps, meaning they’re owned and operated by the local counties. However, there are also a few private organisations that help the state process all its waste, similar to the waste processing facilities in New York.

Keep in mind that you may be charged a fee for dumping your trash. This varies depending on if you’re a resident of the local county, what kind of trash you’re unloading, and how much you have. Check their website or give them a call to confirm pricing.
