Garbage container filled with trash

Across the state of Massachusetts, more than 5 million tonnes of waste is disposed of every year, a relatively low number compared to the millions of tonnes processed in California dumps. Despite the high numbers, the state continues to work towards lowering it, aiming for 4 million tonnes by 2030. In saying that, there’s still a huge need for landfills today, meaning there are still plenty around Massachusetts that would be happy to take some trash off your hands.

You’ll find dumps in areas such as Boston, Brockton, Sutton, Weymouth, Melrose, Milford, Springfield, Rockport, Wayland, and many more.

Waste materials commonly accepted at each of these locations include yard waste, electronics, generic household waste, car parts, construction materials, and more. If you have something that you think could be dangerous to the environment or toxic like batteries, make sure you drop it off at a landfill that can safely process it

Similar to lots of landfills in Florida, many of the dumps in Massachusetts are owned and operated by the local counties. This is great news for local residents of those counties as the fees will generally be lower here.

Although, as some landfill sites begin to become unable to accept more waste, some private organisations are stepping in to pick up the slack. However, expect the fees to be slightly higher at private dumps as they operated on a for-profit model.
