West Pittston is a borough in the Greater Pittston area of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, United States. It is located on the Susquehanna River opposite Pittston. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 4,868.

The town once produced mine screens, cut glass, crackers, and knit and silk goods. West Pittston rose to national attention on September 8, 2011, when catastrophic flooding of the Susquehanna River caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee left much of the borough under water. Nearing the end of 2012, many Tropical Storm Lee Refugees still have yet to return to their homes.
