* The climax of ''TheBraveLittleToaster'' is in a dump, with a giant magnet chasing the heroes around and tossing them into the ConveyorBeltODoom. Particularly depressing since all the cars being discarded are sentient and singing about their glory days before their owners abandoned them as "worthless", while on a conveyor belt leading them into a machine that is going to crush and kill them.

* One of the characters in ''TheIronGiant'' lives in a scrap metal yard; he's a modern artist who uses the trash to make sculptures. It's also a useful place to hide (and feed) the eponymous giant.

* The third level of ''VideoGame/RedneckRampage'' is a gigantic junkyard. Attractions include the tender's shack, the car crusher, and lots upon lots of gaps between piles of cars leading to secret areas.
* The New Haven area in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' is right next to a gigantic landfill, that actually takes up two thirds of the whole map.
* The Garbage in ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}}'', a place full of enormous garbage heaps from the time the Chernobyl reactor had a meltdown. There's much to be scavenged in it, from weapons and ammunition to valuable artifacts and even food. Whether the piles are radioactive or not seems to depend on the Zone's "mood" between emissions[[note]]they are horribly radioactive in ''Shadow of Chernobyl'', but not in ''Clear Sky''[[/note]].

* [[ImageBoards /trash/]] in world-building threads is, logically enough, depicted as a garbage dump stacked with TrashOfTheTitans and filled with tubes that dump all manner of junk in daily. (It's where OffTheRails threads end up, or ones about things [[BerserkButton the mods don't like]].)

** The planet Ord Mantell is shown to have a very large garbage dump/recycling facility in ''ShadowsOfTheEmpire''.



* ''StarWarsShadowsOfTheEmpire'' has the Ord Mantell Junkyard, a massive junkyard the size of an entire city filled with trash and junk as far as the eye can see. If you pay attention you will see stuff like an AT-AT, the Sandcrawler, X-Wings and TIE fighters.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' LicensedGame for the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]], the second act of the fourth world takes place in a junkyard. Enemies include cats that throw tin cans, and Rhubella Rat, who jumps from behind the fence. There are also barrels in that hurt you if you stand on them.

* The [[DireStraits Mark Knopfler]] song ''So Far From The Clyde'' is about a British ship that's being decommissioned in a scrap yard in India. The titular Clyde refers to the Clyde Shipping Company's shipyard in Glasgow, Scotland, where the ship had been constructed.

* ''VideoGame/TheDivision'' has an interesting take on this. The game is set entirely in Midtown Manhattan; with land averaging more than $100 per square foot, it's no surprise that there are no working garbage dumps in this area. However, the setting is the [[NextSundayAD near future]], weeks or months after [[ThePlague super-smallpox]] has caused the [[FallenStatesOfAmerica breakdown of order]] and all municipal services. There is garbage ''everywhere''. Some areas, above-ground and below, have trash bags stacked twice as high as the player, for yards in all directions. This is completely realistic, of course. Even under normal conditions, Manhattan sidewalks are routinely compromised on garbage day. With New Yorkers producing thousands of tons of trash ''per day'', and all of it meant to leave the island (which in this case is [[QuarantineWithExtremePrejudice quarantined]]), a serious interruption of waste collection would look exactly like that, and fast. It's even more believable when you find out what the sanitation workers have been [[KillItWithFire doing instead]]...
