This morning was the final Franklin County compost giveaway for the spring season. During the last few months we have been able to give away over 200 tons of free compost to the citizens of our community. This season has served as a trial run for the giveaway program. It has been a smashing success and we are happy to announce that it will return again in the fall of 2022 with another series of giveaway events.

Franklin County’s livestock composting facility is a cutting edge program in the state of Kentucky. We are proud to serve as a model for other counties who want to create their own programs. The composting program helps our community to reduce waste by diverting around 600 animals from the landfill every year. It is ecologically responsible and benefits our community in many ways such as the new compost giveaway initiative.
