The Kewaunee County Town of Pierce will be starting garbage and recycling curbside pickup in 2019. According to Pierce Town Chair Brian Paplham, the town decided to start the curbside pickup because the Kewaunee County Landfill closed in 2018 and became a transfer station.
In 2017, Pierce gauged the residents' interest about curbside pickup and it was met with mostly a negative response since it would have added $15 per month in taxes. After the landfill closed, however, the town agreed to pay the new garbage curbside pickup tax. The Town of West Kawaunee will also be adding garbage and recyling curbisde pickup starting in April.
