The trash heap is a dumpsite in the Point Lookout area used by the swampfolk to deposit potentially harmful debris. It is located near the northwestern edge of the swampland.


The trash heap is an outdoor area consisting of cars, barrels, wooden boards, and other discarded items piled on top of one another and overgrown with wild grass. The pile radiates up to 9 rads/second and contains various loot scattered among the debris.

Notable loot

  • Mini nuke - in an open safe next to a bed frame on top of the heap.


  • Among the trash are several barrels full of radioactive waste, so Rad-X or RadAway may be useful here.
  • Just north is sample site one, one of the excavated muck holes that is part of the quest An Antique Land.
  • Sometimes swampfolk can be found swimming in the water nearby with bloatflies attacking them.


The trash heap appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.
