Sampson County Landfill – Roseboro, NC


Waste Industries (now GFL Environmental)




In a relatively rural county, inland from the coastal area stands the largest landfill footprint in the state of North Carolina. In addition to receiving an influx of storm-related trash every few years from major hurricanes, the Sampson County Landfill receives municipal trash from Wake County and North Carolina’s Capital City – Raleigh – daily as a result of growing populations.


A tried and true relationship with the client. We have a long track record of working with Waste Industries and Smith-Gardner across the southeastern U.S., constructing and closing landfills, and completing 11 projects to-date.
