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. Town of Weston will bring in more per capita and reduce the cost of the program.
