Around 12 million tonnes of waste is processed by landfills and garbage dumps around Maryland. Of that waste, around 45% of it is recycled and diverted away from underground landfills – a fantastic number putting them far above other states for recycling rates. Despite the high recycling rates, there’s always going to be a need for landfills for waste that can’t be recycled, even if some don’t go as projected. Lucky for you, that means there’s probably a dump nearby ready to accept your trash.

In Maryland, you’ll find landfills in areas such as Baltimore, Oakland, Elkridge, Rockville, Perry Hall, Hagerstown, Jessup, Church Hill, Lusby, and many more counties around the state. Although some had to close down due to administration errors.

Some of the most commonly accepted trash at the locations include yard waste, general household waste, construction materials, electronics, car scraps, tires, and more. If you have waste that could be dangerous to the environment as it’s toxic or hazardous, please make sure the dump is able to process the waste in a safe manner.

The majority of dumps in Maryland are owned and operated by the local councils, which classifies them as municipal dumps. This is similar to the huge number of dumps in California. At these locations, you’ll be charged a lower fee for dumping if you’re a local resident of the county.

This is slightly different when it comes to landfills and transfer stations in Texas, where a lot of the landfills are privately owned. For all the privately owned ones in Maryland as well, expect to pay slightly higher fees as they operate on a for-profit business model.
