Recycling and Garbage Collection

The City of Jefferson contracts with John’s Disposal Service for the City’s refuse collection and recycling needs.

  • The service day for the entire city is TUESDAY.
  • The GREEN cart is for recycling and is emptied every two weeks.
  • The BROWN cart is for garbage and is emptied every Tuesday.
  • Extra items are taken once a month with the “bulky”. The bulky collection is the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
  • Leave 4 feet of space around each cart.
  • Do not put extra items next to the carts.

Shared-Ride Taxi Service

The Shared-Ride service will be provided on a shared ride basis. This means that vehicles may be routed to pick up or drop off passengers en-route to other passenger’s origins or destinations so as to allow a greater number of passengers to be carried with available vehicles. The use of shared ride should be limited if it will create excessive travel times for passengers.
