Single Stream Recycling Is Here!
You'll notice a different setup at the Transfer Station. There are only two places to put your waste. To the left of the building you'll see two giant blue boxes. The one on the left is for your trash. Put your recyclables into the one on the right, all mixed together. You no longer need to sort! The documents below will tell you what you need to know. Read each document carefully. If you have additional questions, Mike is there to answer them.

Transfer Station Activity
The Town of Presque Isle will be accepting yard waste and certain other materials that can be easily composted.
The Transfer Station has a sand pad that is ready to accept your yard waste and compostable items. Enter through the gate to the right of the building and look for the sand pad on your right. You will see a sign that identifies acceptable and unacceptable compost materials. Please ask the attendant for more information or see the handouts available at the Transfer Station.
Wisconsin law prohibits disposal of yard materials in landfills. Composting is an easy, inexpensive alternative to landfills that puts these resources to use instead of simply throwing them away. https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/Recycling/compost.html
Are you interested in the history of Presque Isle? Would you like to learn more?
Thank you to the Presque Isle Heritage Society for the following bit of history. If this piques your interest, consider joining the Presque Isle Heritage Society.
The river running through and alongside the town received the name "Presque Isle" when two French Priests were shipwrecked trying to cross Lake Superior. They survived the winter along the river banks. When spring’s high water levels arrived, they found themselves on "almost an island", or in French, "Presque Isle", earning the river and the town’s largest lake, their rightful name.
Presque Isle is a Bird City! Learn more here.
