Kentucky has one of the highest per-capita rates of waste going to landfills, with more than 19 million tonnes ending up at garbage dumps around the state in 2021. And while some landfills are being denied permits to expand their operations, others are saying landfills are here to stay for the near future and we need to properly maintain them. Lucky for you, there are still plenty of dumps around Kentucky that would be more than happy to process your waste.
You’ll find them in areas such as Louisville, Harrodsburg, Berea, Lancaster, Springfield, Lexington, Jeffersonville, Jackson, Somerset, and many more counties.
Some of the most commonly accepted trash at these locations include building rubble like bricks, concrete, scrap metals, as well as household waste like yard waste, electronics, white goods, furniture, and also car parts. For toxic or potentially hazardous material, please give them a call beforehand to make sure they can safely dispose of the waste without damaging the environment.
