On March 20, 2020 Pitt County Solid Waste & Recycling temporarily suspended the popular FreeCycle Fridays program, due to response concerns over the spread of COVID-19.
FreeCycle Fridays is a unique program, that takes items originally discarded at the Pitt County Transfer Station (formerly the Pitt County Landfill) and posts them to the Freecycle Fridays photo album on the @PittCountyNC Facebook page every Friday at Noon. Once posted, the items can be claimed by members of the public and picked up for free. The items can then be repurposed, refurbished, and have the double benefit of finding new life for items not yet ready to be discarded, and reducing the overall amount of waste Pitt County transfers to landfills annually.
Beginning this Friday, June 5, 2020, Pitt County will restart the program, with the following new guidelines in place:
In just 6 months after the start of the program in April of 2019, it generated a total reduction of nearly 2 tons of material originally destined for a landfill. The program was on track to more than double those numbers by the one-year mark in 2020, but was cut short of that, due to being suspended for COVID-19 efforts. Solid Waste & Recycling staff are looking forward to once again offering this program and the many benefits it provides to the community.
