Alpena is located in the  heart of East Central South Dakota. We're a small community with a diverse population. We are southwest of Huron and Northwest of Mitchell and are surrounded by several other small communities. This gives us the advantage of being centrally located for purposes of education, entertainment, shopping, etc. We celebrated 125 years in Alpena in 2008 with 3 days of great food, good fun and lots of memories. 

Upcoming Events:



The Town of Alpena will have large dumpsters available at the landfill.  REMINDER: You cannot put tires, batteries, paint, paint cans, oil, grass clippings, branches or white goods in the dumpsters.  These items, except branches and white goods, need to be disposed of properly at the nearest rubble site, which would be Huron.  Branches, white goods and construction materials can be disposed of at the Alpena dump site, however not in the dumpster.  You may make arrangements to access the dump by contacting a town employee or board member.  In an effort to clean-up the Town, on Saturday, May 2nd and Saturday, May 9th the Town of Alpena will provide crews to pick up your disposable items.  If you set items on the edge of your yard, they will be picked up and disposed of.
