More than 11 million tonnes of solid waste is disposed of at landfills and dumps in North Carolina every year. And although environmentalists continue to try and increase recycling rates, there will be a demand for dumps for many years to come. That’s good news for you, as it means there’s likely a dump or transfer station not too far away.

You’ll find dumps all across the state in areas such as Raleigh, Aberdeen, Chapel Hill, Sanford, Nebo, Graham, Greenville, Clayton, Pinetopes, and many more.

To find a dump near you, enter your location into the map or scroll through the list below to see them all.

Some of the most commonly accepted waste materials at these locations include household goods, construction rubble like papers, bricks, sand, and scrap metals, as well car parts and more. If you have something that could be hazardous, make sure it goes to the right location so it doesn’t have a negative impact on the local environment.

Just like many of the dumps in Georgia, you’ll find most of the locations in North Carolina are owned and operated by local counties. Tipping fees here will generally be lower than tipping fees at a privately-owned and operated location.

If you know of any more dumps, landfills, or transfer stations around the state that aren’t listed here, please let us know so we can add them in. Thank you!
