Users of the Kewaunee County landfill only have just over a week to use the site before they have to potentially go elsewhere with their trash. After it was learned that the expansion of the landfill would not be cost-effective, the Kewaunee County Board of Supervisors decided in 2015 to get out of the solid waste business and cap it at an estimated expense of $1.1 million. Kewaunee County Highway Commissioner Todd Every says there are no future plans for the site.
The last day Kewaunee County will accept solid waste at the landfill is May 25. Riverview Transfer, which is leasing a building and five acres of land at the site, will offer waste and recycling services beginning May 29.
