Pitt County Government

The Pitt County Transfer Station is responsible for the proper processing and disposal of solid waste generated in Pitt County. The mission is to operate in a cost effective manner that also minimizes the degradation of our environment. Pitt County closed the landfill in 1995 and now the facility operates as a transfer station, transferring the waste to the Bertie County landfill. The Transfer Station is located at 3025 Landfill Rd, Greenville.


Monday – Friday 8:00a - 4:00p
Saturdays 8:00a - Noon
