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.
