Sampson County hosts a regional landfill that exceeds federal Subtitle D and state solid waste requirements. The landfill is owned and operated by Sampson County Disposal, Inc., a subsidiary of Waste Industries, Inc.

State solid waste facility permits and County host fee agreements/franchise ordinances govern the tonnage and type of waste material which can be disposed of at the Sampson County landfill. Under the existing facility permit and under applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, this waste includes, but is not limited to, household, commercial or municipal refuse, ashes, sludges, animal manure, residue from incineration, food processing wastes, dredging wastes, tires, asbestos, but expressly excluding nuclear waste or waste defined as hazardous waste under applicable federal, state, and/or local laws or regulations. The landfill is permitted to accept qualified waste from all counties of the State of North Carolina.
Landfills operated by Waste Industries convert the methane produced as a natural byproduct of waste decomposition into clean, useable energy. This energy is routed back into the power grid and is then is distributed to the surrounding community, allowing a cheap and clean alternative to many other forms of energy production. While the landfill continues to break down the elements stored within it, regular tests are performed on the areas surrounding the cells. Many steps are taken in producing a clean, reliable, and undamaging landfill, some of which include the development of wetlands by Waste Industries that provide natural habitats for much of the wildlife within the area. These wetlands are constantly monitored and carefully protected by landfill staff, ensuring a clean and healthy environment for the flora and fauna that inhabits the region surrounding their landfill.
