The Kewaunee Riverview Transfer Station is a new business that provides responsible solutions to refuse disposal and recycling needs.
We are located in the former Kewaunee landfill transfer building at E3726 County Road L in Kewaunee, WI.
This Facility is independently operated for the citizens of Kewaunee County and surrounding areas.
What is a Transfer Station
A transfer station is a building or processing site for the temporary deposition of waste, garbage, or recycling material. Transfer stations are often used as places where local collection vehicles will deposit their waste or recycling cargo prior to loading into larger vehicles.
Why Using a Transfer Station
Today’s large landfills no longer allow small vehicles to enter their site for safety issues and the fact that small vehicles would get stuck in a modern landfill is part of the reason the general public is not allowed. Less people less chance of an accident. The Kewaunee Recycling and Waste Transfer Station is designed and managed for safe unloading of small and large alike plus they are easier to keep clean with paved unloading areas.
Transfer stations reduce the cost of transporting waste and recycling to distant dumps and landfills by serving as convenient hubs that manage your community's waste and recycling. At the transfer station, waste is consolidated and transferred to large, long-distance trucks for delivery to disposal facilities.
Why Using The Kewaunee Recycling and Waste Transfer Station
Our transfer station is independently owned and our belief in personal service where possible will leave your experience here as a positive influence in your mind. We do take single stream recycling items along with your household trash for recycling so feel free to bring it along. Please bundle any cardboard separate please. We are not just a disposal site – we believe in the laws of recycling: *Reduce * Reuse * Recycle * Reject * Repair * Compost

What Happens at the Kewaunee Transfer Station?
You will drive on the scale and the attendant will ask some very basic questions when you come in. This allows us to best determine where we put you. Please tell us if you have any ashes in your garbage as this must be kept separate.
Small vehicles you will either unload inside if you can dump your load or outside into an open top box. For large vehicles you WILL UNLOAD INSIDE. Some minor separation may occur, and loads will be mixed and compacted into a larger box and when that trash is tightly compacted into one heavy load it will be hauled to the landfill. By compacting many small loads, you our customer saves fuel – time – money when compared to hauling yourself.
Safety and Sustainability First
Please remember – ALL LOADS MUST BE COVERED AND MOST IMPORTANT YOU MUST WEAR SAFETY CLOTHING/VESTS WHEN ON THE PROPERTY. We can sell you a vest if you have none. We are an environmentally safe company. Please follow the attendant’s directions.
