Taking out the trash? Where does the trash go when my dumpster is emptied?

In Cobb County, GA and Paulding County, GA, trash is taken to a landfill or transfer station.

A Sanitary Landfill is where non-hazardous waste, residential trash, green waste, construction waste is spread and compacted between layers of soil and dirt.

A Secure Landfill is specifically designed for the disposal of hazardous waste. At these landfills holes and trenches are lined with impervious plastic sheeting to prevent leaking and leaching of environmentally dangerous materials into the soil and water supply.

A Transfer Station is a service offered in many communities that acts as a intermediate location for waste disposal, at which recyclables and refuse are collected and sorted before processing to a final disposal site.
