Get rid of your unwanted items at dumps and landfills in Kansas

While there are some great programs across Kansas that aim to increase recycling and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, there are still millions of tonnes of waste that can’t be recycled – and it needs to go somewhere. Luckily, there are plenty of dumps, transfer stations, and landfills across the state that would be more than happy to take your trash off your hands. Some have even sued the government to get more trash at their dumps.

You’ll find these dumps in areas such as Kansas City, Galena, Bel Aire, Cherryvale, Effingham, Lansing, Wathena, Topeka, Prescott, and many more.

Household goods, typical yard waste, car parts, tires, building materials, scrap metals, papers, plastics, and electronics are the most commonly accepted items at these locations. If you’re dumping toxic or potentially hazardous material, make sure to check that the operator is able to process it – as some go to great lengths to ensure it doesn’t harm their local environment and community.

As with most of the dumps and landfills in Illinois, many of the locations you’ll find here are operated by the local counties. However, there are a few privately-owned companies that are in the garbage dump business around the state. This is quite common around the country, especially in Texas where many of the dumps are also privately owned.

Keep in mind that if you’re dumping at a private dump, you may be charged a higher fee than dumping at one managed by the local county. Fees also vary depending on what you’re dumping and how much you’ve got, so make sure to give them a quick call to double check the pricing.

Everyday materials such as scrap metals, building rubble, household goods, and yard waste will be accepted by most dumps. If you have batteries or some other materials that could be toxic, please give them a call beforehand to check that they can process it.

You will most likely be charged a fee to unload your trash. This changes depending on what materials you’re dumping, how much you’re dumping, and potentially whether you’re a resident of the county that the site is located in.
