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”.

Residents may call John’s Disposal’s office M-F from 8am – 4:30pm and Saturday 8am – noon to schedule collection.  Bulk item collection will be scheduled each week throughout each month.  Residents no longer need to wait until the second Tuesday of the month.  Residents may schedule one bulk items collection per month.

Note: residents may substitute two of their twelve bulk items collections to have an electronic item collected. 

This does not include yard waste, construction material or hazardous material.

Please note that the green recycling carts are emptied every other week and cannot be emptied by the bulk collection crews.

Bulky Collection Reminders

The fall leaf pick up will begin on October 12.  We ask that residents rake their leaves into the gutters for pick up.  Leaves will be picked up in the City streets until either all the leaves placed in the curb line have been collected or the snow prohibits them from continuing.  Please do not mix brush with leaves, as this will plug the leaf machine.  The City DOES NOT pick up leaves in the spring.  

Crews will start at one quadrant in the City and work street to street until the entire City is picked up.  It typically takes the Public Works crew one week to complete a full round through the City before they begin again.  Your patience is appreciated.
