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.

Enter your address into the map to find a location closest to you, or scroll through the list of all the dumps in Pennsylvania below.

You’ll find most of these dumps accept common trash materials like furniture, homewares, tires and other car parts, yard waste, and more. If you have something that’s toxic, or maybe bad for the environment, make sure it ends up at a location that can safely process it.

Please be aware that you will most likely be charged a fee to drop of your trash at any of these locations. They vary depending on whether you’re dumping at a private or county-owned dump, how much you’re dumping, and what kind of materials you have. You can check their website or give them a quick call to confirm pricing.

As well, if you know of any more dumps, landfills, or transfer stations in Pennsylvania that aren’t listed below, please let us know so we can add them in. Thank you!
