The road is gravel at the site and will remain so for some time to allow for proper settling before paving.

Please exercise caution in the area.

SUMMER ROAD WORK: This summer we'll be working on the following roads:

Chain of Lakes Road - From 1 mile west of Rangeline Rd to Town Hall Road. Overlay with 2 1/4 inches asphalt.

East Cranberry Lake Road - From Hwy 70 to East Bass Lake Rd. Pulverize, 4 inches gravel, and repave with asphalt. Construction to start prior to July 4th.

Shangri La Road - West side of Deerskin Lake. Reconstruct with 2 1/4 inches asphalt.

Town Dump Road - Pulverize, gravel, and repave with asphalt.

AQUATIC WEED DISPOSAL: If you remove aquatic weeds from your shoreline (including aquatic invasive species), they can be brought to the brush site for disposal in the compost pile. Do not bring them to the transfer station.

PLEASE NOTE: Cardboard larger than 3' X 4' is NOT ACCEPTED at the transfer station as it causes the compactor to jam. Please ensure cardboard boxes are flattened.

The Brush Site is OPEN. It’s free to our Town residents and open 24/7. It’s located on Rangeline Road directly across from the entrance to the Transfer Station, by the Smokey Bear sign.

Please note, the driving surface is not maintained and may be soft and muddy when wet.

You can bring grass clippings, leaves, pine needles, sawdust, branches, brush, limbs, and logs. In fact, any kind of clean wood. NO MAN-MADE OBJECTS.

NO painted or varnished wood, concrete, stones or brick, plastic, metal, or nails are allowed. NO STUMPS.

Please place plastic bags in container provided.

This is a service to our residents and NO contractor dumping is permitted! If you hire a contractor, they should dispose of brush at their customary disposal site, NOT the town brush site.

There have been instances of abuse at the site. Contractors have used the site, old tires and plastic bags filled with yard waste have been left. Abuse will not be tolerated. The actions of a few could ruin it for many.

The compost bins have been constructed. When ready, compost will be available free to our town residents.

Please note new phone number for the Town Shop 715-477-2024.

We will be developing a webpage dedicated to the Town of Washington Comprehensive Land Use Plan in the near future. In the interim, items related to the plan will be posted here. Meeting agendas and minutes can be found on the Agenda page.
