Transfer Station Activity
Changes are happening at the Transfer Station in preparation for our conversion to single stream recycling. Some of the blacktop has been removed to accommodate the concrete pads that will support the containers for recyclables and solid waste. The concrete will be poured soon and allowed to cure for 30 days before the containers are delivered.
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.
