Mississippi processes more than 5 million tonnes of waste material every year, and despite all the recycling programs around the state and residents not wanting more landfills in their counties, there is still a great need for the current and new landfills to be managed effectively. This is good news for you because it means there’s likely a dump very close-by.
You’ll find the dumps, landfills, and transfer stations all across the state including in areas such as Jackson, Ovett, Pearl, Ridgeland, Fulton, Decatur, Booneville, Canton, Brandon, Meadville, and many more.
Some of the most commonly accepted items at these locations include yard waste, scrap metals, household goods, tires and other car parts, electronics, paper, glassware, and more. If you have something that could be toxic or hazardous like batteries or certain chemicals, make sure the dump is able to process it safely as to not impact the local environment.
