Tennessee generates millions of tonnes of solid waste every year, and despite great efforts to increase recycling rates around the state, there is still a great need for landfills and dumps. Even more so as some of Nashville’s busiest dump nears closure. But that’s good news for you, as it means there’s likely a dump nearby ready to accept your unwanted trash.

You’ll find them all across the state in towns and cities such as Nashville, Cookeville, Brighton, Dickson, Smithville, Chuck Hill, Pikeville, Bath Springs, and many more. These dumps will accept a wide range of everyday materials, however, if you have something that’s toxic, make sure they are able to process it safely without impacting the environment.

Much like a lot of the dumps in Pennsylvania, many of the ones in Tennessee are owned by local counties. Dumping your trash here will generally cost less than at a private dump – as they operate on a for-profit model. You can check their website or give them a call for accurate pricing.
