At the August 27th meeting with the county, The county informed the municipalities that the waste and recycling program for each town household would have had to pay $329.15 per year. That is $85/person. They have since reported in newspapers and handouts at the site that it was $68/household.

The town held an Emergency meeting on August 31, 2020 where the town board voted to pull out of the Dunn Co. Solid Waste and Recycling Program and take over the Dump Site at N2723 440th St for all households. This decision created many meetings to determine haulers, town cooperation with other government(s) and RU paperwork responsibilities.

On September 22, the Town of Dunn signed an agreement with the Town of Weston to use the site. This will bring in more per capita and reduce the cost of the program. 

Beginning January 1, 2021, we will provide Garbage and Recycling services at the Pitt Lake Collection Site at N2723 440th St, Menomonie, WI.  Depending on when we can do renovations to the site, we will have 3 compactors for dual stream recycling and garbage. Although the renovations will make the first year more expensive, future years will be quite a reduction in price. At NO TIME, will we ever get to the County's $80/resident price.
