Garbage & Recycling

Town of Jefferson Recycling Report

Congratulations on your recycling efforts.
Town of Jefferson residents recycled over twice the WI DNR required 106.6 lbs per capita from June 2015 to June 2016.  In October 2016, John's reported that our residents recycled nearly 250 tons over the last twelve months.

Even though we did well over the past year, we can always find room to improve/increase our recycling efforts.  Please continue to make a difference.
