GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT)- Pitt County is working to increase recycling participation. The county sent out a postcard with information about what can be recycled along with where and when it can be picked up. If your neighborhood does not have recycling bins, there are 14 sites around the county including the Transfer Station location. Food and beverage cartons, mixed paper, aluminum and tin cans, along with plastic bottles and containers are some of the things the county will recycle.
John Demary, Director of Solid Waste and Recycling, said, “we are now taking milk cartons and drink cartons, which we just added. Also, we take one through seven plastics and a lot of people didn’t realize that.”
Every resident in Pitt County should have received a postcard. If you didn’t, you can visit pittcountync.gov/depts/solidwaste/ for a full list of what is accepted.
