Welcome to the City of Jefferson, Wisconsin

Jefferson, Wisconsin is a quaint Wisconsin community. Main Street shows off its vintage buildings and steepled churches built by German craftsmen. Two picturesque rivers flow through the middle of town. Our rivers will be a focal point for visitors and residents, so they can float up and catch a concert, meal and even camp along the riverbank. We know what we have is special, because people from big cities keep moving here. It’s also because we’re close by, comfortable, easygoing, hardworking, genuine and fun loving. If the great outdoors are important in your life, then Jefferson should be, too. Because, “We’re Going Outside”.

Monthly Brush Collection

Brush pick-up starts on the first Monday of each month throughout the year (unless snow plowing prohibits collection). You should have your brush out on the curb by 7 a.m. on Monday to ensure your brush will be picked up during the week. We ask that people put their brush on the tree lawn, with all of the larger heavy ends of the branches facing in one direction, with the flow of the traffic. We still have people piling their brush in a tangled, mixed up fashion. If this is the case, the city crew will leave the pile of brush for the property owners to either straighten out or dispose of themselves. Please understand that due to the LARGE volume of brush which can be put at the curb it often takes more than one day for the crews to circulate the entire City. Please be patient. 11/12/19 – Please see additional information under Leaf Collection to the right.

Leaf Collection Info

11/12/19 PRESS RELEASE CITY OF JEFFERSON LEAF PICKUP, BRUSH PICKUP & SNOW REMOVAL This is a notice from the City of Jefferson Public Works Department in regard to the status of leaf and brush pickup. Leaf pickup was started on October 14th and the Public Works crews have completed two cycles of leaf pickup through the city. With the early snow accumulation, we are no longer able to use our vacuum systems to pick up leaves and have switched to picking up leaves with loaders, skid steers and trucks which is a much slower and labor intensive process. As of today, Tuesday November 12th, due to the projected forecast, we are asking residents to no longer place leaves in the city street gutters. Public Works crews will continue to pick up leaves currently in the street as the conditions allow however if the combination of snow and low temperatures continue, we will be forced to plow back to the curbs and any leaves left in the street will be pushed onto the terraces. In an effort to accommodate residents, the City compost site is being left open continuously for residents to dispose of leaves themselves. All leaves should be placed on the north end of the compost site in the designated pile. Brush pickup scheduled for last week was also delayed due to leaf pickup and snow plowing. Public Works crews will be picking up brush over the next two weeks as conditions allow. Please do not mix brush and leaves in the same piles. Lastly, due to the amount of leaves still on trees or in residents’ yards, we are anticipating that Public Works crews will be picking up leaves in the spring of 2020, unlike previous years. More information will be provided when details are known. The City of Jefferson Public Works Department thanks you for cooperation and patience.
