Across the state of Texas, there are hundreds of garbage dumps, landfills, and transfer stations. Many have been in operations for decades, whilst some have just been newly opened. And they’re needed because according to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, more than 36 million tonnes of waste headed to landfills across the state in 2020. Some dumps are even filling up so fast, local counties are considering increasing tipping fees to deter people from dumping. But despite all that, we’re here to help you unload your trash and find the nearest dump to you.

You’ll find dumps, landfills, and transfer stations all across the state in areas such as Houston, Austin, Dallas, Bay City, Irving, Seymour, El Paso, Hawkins, Pipe Creek, and many more. There’s even a new landfill proposed for the Carverdale area, but that’s facing harsh opposition from local residents.

Most of these locations will accept generic types of waste including construction rubble like sand, bricks, and scrap metals, as well as general household waste like yard waste, white goods, electronics, papers, plastics, and more. Others will also accept car parts like tires. However, if you have some potentially hazardous or dangerous material that may need special processing before it’s dumped, please call ahead before you head down to see if they can accept your materials.

Similar to California, Illinois, and Florida, most of the dumps in Texas are owned and operated by local counties. This means that if you’re a resident of the county you’re dumping at, you may not be charged a fee. Keep in mind though, that you may be charged a fee depending on what materials you’re dumping and how much it weighs.

If you plan on dumping at one of the many privately owned sites around the state, you will likely be charged a fee. Give them a call before you head down to confirm pricing.
