Kewaunee County road littering worsens

Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski wants you to know it is a lot cheaper to drop off your trash at the waste transfer station in Kewaunee than it is to get caught dumping on the side of the road.  There have been many incidents over the last several months with large items like televisions and couches being discarded in ditches and road shoulders. It peaked on Saturday when a large pile of tires was found near Gasche Road in the town of Montpelier. Joski says even though the former Kewaunee County landfill site changed hands last year to a private operator, not much else has changed to warrant the increase in littering cases.

Joski says the investigation in the tire dumping case is ongoing and the fine for littering large items is several hundred dollars.
