Different construction material waste in a garbage bin

New York City itself disposes of thousands of tonnes of waste every day, combining with all the residents across the state of New York, and you have millions of tonnes of waste that needs to be processed. Whatever waste that can’t be recycled, reprocessed, or composted, heads to landfills, and that’s still a lot of waste. This is why there are still plenty of garbage dumps and landfills across the city and state for you to visit. And although some are being converted into renewable energy projects, there are still new ones being built and expanded.

You’ll find dumps and landfills all across the state including in New York City, West Hampton, Port Washington, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Long Island, and many more.

Types of trash accept at these locations include your generic household waste such as yard waste, homewares, electronics, white goods, and so on. Some others will also accept construction rubble, scrap metal, plastics, papers, glassware, and more. If you have something that could potentially be hazardous like batteries or toxic chemicals, please give them a call beforehand to double check they can accept your items.

Of all the dumps, transfer stations, and landfills in New York, most of them are owned by the local councils. This is quite similar to the dumps in California, Florida, and Illinois. Of course, waste is big business, so there are quite a few private operations that manage dumps around the state.

Please be aware that if you’re not a local resident of the council that the dump is located in, you may be charged a fee to unload your trash. This also varies depending on if it’s a private organisations, what kind of materials you’re dumping, and how much of it you have. Give them a quick call beforehand to avoid any unwanted surprises.
