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

Scrapyard full of various trash

Montana generates around 2 million tonnes of solid waste every year, with nearly 75% of it still ending up in landfills – making it one of the lowest rates of recycling in the country. Times are changing though, with new recycling programs being set up to decrease the amount of waste ending up in landfills and dumps. Still, there is a strong need for landfills around the state, and that’s good news for you because it means there’s likely a dump close by ready to accept your trash so you don’t need to illegally dump your trash.

You’ll find dumps all around Montana including in regions such as Clancy, Helena, Sidney, Glendive, Havre, Valier, Dillion, Hardin, and many more.

Most of the dumps will accept normal waste such as construction rubble like scrap metals, bricks, sand, and so on, as well as common household goods, yard waste, car parts, electronics, and more. If you have something that could be toxic or hazardous, make sure it ends up at a facility that is able to process it safely, as it could be quite dangerous.

Just like many of the dumps in Illinois, the majority of dumps you’ll find in Montana are owned and operated by the local counties. This means that if you live in the county where the dump is located, you’ll likely receive discounted fees.

On the other hand, if the landfill or dumps if owned by a private company, like quite a few in New York, expect fees to be slightly higher as they operated on a for-profit business model.
