Virginia throws out more than 16 million tonnes of solid waste around the state, with more than 5 million tonnes of waste coming in from out-of-state as well. Luckily, Virginia has one of the highest rates of recycling in the country, at just under 50%. In saying that, that still means millions of tonnes of waste need to end up somewhere, and that’s usually at a dump or landfill.

You’ll find dumps all over Virginia in areas such as Richmond, Virginia Beach, King George, Radford, Charlottesville, Suffolk, Winchester, Prospect, Chase City, Forest, Hanover, and many more. Most of the dumps will accept most everyday trash materials, but if you have something toxic or hazardous, double check that they can process it safely before you visit them.
