New Jersey processes more than 20 million tonnes of solid waste across the state, and while a large portion of that is recycled, some still inevitably end up in landfills and dumps. And while recycling efforts continue to increase, there will also be a need for landfills to process materials that can’t be recycled. That’s good news for you as it means there’s likely a dump or transfer station nearby ready to take your trash off your hands.

While some landfills are being transformed into solar power farms and parks, there are still plenty of traditional dumps in areas such as Trenton, Alloway, Lafayette, Kearny, Cherry Hill, Freehold, Keyport, Monroeville, and many more.
