Nebraska has been at the forefront of reducing solid waste ending up in landfills for many years now, giving themselves one of the highest recycling rates in the country or nearly 40%. Despite that, there is still a great need for landfills and dumps throughout the state as more than 2 million tonnes of waste still ends up there every year. That’s good news for those looking for a location to dump some trash, as it means there’s likely one nearby.
You’ll find these dumps, landfills, and transfer stations in areas such as Lincoln, York, hastings, Bennington, Columbus, Lexington, Springfield, McCook, and many more.
If you’re thinking about dumping materials that could be hazardous or potentially toxic, please visit their website or give them a call beforehand to make sure they can process it safely. Otherwise, most dumps will accept common materials such as construction rubble, household goods, car parts, and yard waste.
