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.

To find your nearest one, enter your location into the map, or scroll through the list below to see them all.

If you have waste materials that may be a little bit out of the ordinary, make sure they end up at dumps that can safely process them without having a negative impact on the local environment. It’s always a good idea to make sure they’re properly licensed as well.

As you’ll see below, many of the dumps in Ohio are owned by local counties, just like in New Jersey. Tipping fees here are generally lower than privately owned dumps as they operated on a for-profit business model.
