At present, the municipality has a Municipal Dumping site located at Barangay Maningcol. With a total land area of 3.7 hectares, the 1.7 hectares is reserved for the construction of Sanitary Landfill. The remaining 2 hectares can accommodate 8 tons of wastes everyday.

A rehabilitation once every year is needed to accommodate the continues dumping of wastes. The Controlled Dump site will be closed and rehabilitation plan will be prepared based on DAO series of 2006 or authority to close (ATC) to be issued by EMB Regional Office. Pinamalayan have three garbage compactor trucks for garbage collection. Garbage collection is done on a daily basis even on Sundays and holidays. The compactor trucks, on each trip, usually haul about one to two tons of garbage. On an ordinary day, it would complete two to three trips thereby collecting some 7 tons. The one tonner truck hauls at least three trips on a daily basis while the other truck hauls two trips daily.
