More than 5 million tonnes of solid waste ends up in landfills and dumps around Ohio every year. While that may seem like a big number, various recycling programs have seen some counties reach recycling rates of more than 50% – an incredible effort. However, even if recycling rates continue to rise, there will always be a need for landfills. That’s good news for you, as it means there’s likely a landfill or dump nearby ready to accept your trash.
As new dumps are opened and others expanded, you’ll continue to find them all around the state. Areas such as Columbus, Mansfield, Toledo, Canton, Dayton, Kenton, Pomeroy, Cambridge, and many more all hand landfills and transfer stations.
