Get rid of your unwanted items at dumps and landfills in Missouri

Inside a dumpster filled with household waste

Millions of tonnes of waste materials end up in Missouri landfills every year, And despite Missouri’s State Recycling Program recycling more than 10 million pounds of waste in 2019, there is still a great need for landfills and dumps around the state. And with new ones still being built, that means there’s likely a dump near you that’ll happily accept your waste.

You’ll find these dumps, landfills, and transfer stations all across the state in regions such as St Louis, Columbia, La Grange, El Dorado Springs, Kansas City, Jefferson City, Ravenwood, Bethany, Sugar Creek, and many more.

Generic household waste, white goods, electronics, homewares, car parts, and construction rubble are a few of the most commonly accepted items. If you have waste that could be toxic or hazardous, make sure the landfill can process it effectively without impacting on those near the dump.

The vast majority of dumps in Missouri are owned by the local counties. This is great news for residents who already live in those counties, as you’ll likely receive discounted tipping fees when paying them a visit.

There are also a few privately owned and operated dumps, just like in California, who operated on a for-profit business model. Expect tipping fees to be slightly higher here.

Keep in mind that fees also vary depending on what type of materials you’re dumping and how much you have.
