On April 15, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Pamlico County Government is hosting a citizens Clean Sweep event to collect roadside litter from across Pamlico County.

Supplies include gloves, trash grabbers, safety vests, and trash bags. County staff will help to arrange for pick-up of collected litter, we just need to know the location that volunteers wish to clean up. Please join us for this event and help Keep Pamlico County Beautiful!
Remember, roadside litter is an ever-present problem that detracts from the beauty of our local landscapes and poses risks to our environment. Litter can endanger wildlife with physical and toxicological hazards, can reduce property values, and discourage customers from entering local businesses.
So, what can you do to help prevent the problem of litter in Pamlico County? According to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, one of the largest contributing factors to roadside litter is from unsecured loads in trucks. Trash and light items can easily be blown from a truck bed and large heavy items can be lost at high speeds. By securing your load with a tarp, net, rope or chain, you can help prevent items from becoming litter, while aiding in the protection of other motorists that might be struck by debris.
Pamlico County is also a member of the Coastal Environmental Partnership that provides solid waste disposal to the citizens of Craven, Carteret and Pamlico County. There is a local transfer station located at 3291 Hwy. 306 North, Grantsboro, NC, which provides for convenient and inexpensive disposal of solid waste. Pamlico County also operates a recycling convenience center at this location, accepting items such as batteries, cans, plastics, paper, glass, tires, and appliances. For more information about these services, visit the Pamlico County Solid Waste and Recycling website.
Additional convenience recycling sites are staffed several times a week across the county to help collect recyclables and discourage illegal dumping of non-recyclable waste. Residents should check the schedule of locations to ensure the site is open, as locations rotate during the week.
