Despite some states doing almost everything they can to minimize waste to landfills and dumps, Michigan still has a relatively high waste to dump ratio. In 2019 alone, more than 43 million cubic yards of waste ended up at dumps around Michigan. And although there are plenty of recycling initiatives around the state, the need for landfills is still high, meaning there’s likely a dump near you where you can unload your trash.
You’ll find the locations around the state in areas such as Boston, Wayne, Trenton, Lansing, Jackson, Montrose, Howell, South Branch, and many more.
Some of the most commonly accepted waste materials at these dumps include generic household goods, construction rubble like scrap metals, bricks, and sand, as well as car parts, electronics, yard waste, and more. If you have hazardous or potentially dangerous materials, call them before to check if they can safely process them.
