Residents in the town of Pierce will not have to drive to a landfill to drop off their recycling and garbage beginning next year. The town will introduce curbside pickup starting on January 1st after the Kewaunee County Board read an ordinance at its last meeting essentially forbidding the practice of burning garbage. Town chairperson Brian Paplham says curbside pickup offers many positives for the community.
Paplham says the town of Pierce is one of the last municipalities to offer the service to its residents. Curbside pickup of the garbage and recycling containers will cost residents $15 a month.
