Accepted Items at the Madison Landfill

Now that we’ve talked about what not to put in a landfill, we’ll share the most common items that are accepted in landfills: 

  • Food waste
  • Food packaging, such as wrappers
  • Household trash
  • Commercial waste
  • Plastic bags
  • Non-recyclable plastic, paper, and glass

One final topic to mention is that paper, such as newspapers, make up the majority of items in a landfill. As a gentle reminder, paper including newsprint and glossy paper, are accepted at recycle centers. To limit the amount of waste in landfills, we encourage you to stay up-to-date on the types of items that are accepted in landfills opposed to those that are recyclable.

As always, if you have any questions about your landfill or recycling needs, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Eco-Friendly Waste Disposal

Like all landfills, our landfill is monitored for federal compliance, meaning it is specifically designed and optimally located to handle the proper disposal of waste. With this in mind, our landfill exists to protect the environment from contaminants opposed to the alternative method which is placing waste in streams and harming the environment and ecosystem. Wall Recycling is happy to offer a convenient waste disposal center that is also eco-friendly. 

The county landfill in Madison, NC is situated away from all areas of water, including wetlands and streams in effort to restrict the amount of waste that is deposited in bodies of water. Another major aspect of landfills is that they have a lining at the bottom which keeps toxic waste from leaching into the soil and groundwater. 

As an additional preventative measure, there is a system that sits on top of the liner and extracts leachate, ideally before it reaches the liner. There are also detection devices that detect any leaks right outside the landfill so our team will be alerted and correct the issue in a timely manner. In other words, our landfill is designed to handle your household and commercial waste while simultaneously protecting the earth and environment.
