More than 14 million tonnes of solid waste was disposed of in 2020 across Pennsylvania. But despite the fact that the state has quite a high rate of recycling at around 30%, that still means millions of tonnes of non-recycled waste needs to go somewhere. And that’s usually a dump or landfill. Good news for you, as it means there’s likely a dump nearby ready to process your trash.
The demand is so high for dumps, that some that have been closed for more than 25 years are starting to re-open. You’ll find dumps all across the state in areas such as Philadelphia, Glenside, Hanover, Harrisburg, Altoona, Scottdale, Elizabeth, Northampton, Sunbury, and many more locations.
