Frequently Asked Questions

Who do I call regarding customer service issues with my trash and recycling?

How do I dispose of large items and extra trash?

Extra bags of trash (up to two) may be left beside of or on top of your red rolling cart for collection.  Larger items, such as furniture, may be scheduled for a bulk waste pickup with Legacy carting for a small fee, or taken to the landfill during a free voucher day.  For disposal of white-good appliances, contact Billy Jo Giles, Environmental Code Enforcement Officer, for free pickup.

Where can I dispose of an old TV?

The City of Frankfort offers free electronics recycling at the facility located on Rouse Avenue. Newer flat screen models as well as older box style tube televisions may be dropped off at this location.


How do I dispose of hazardous products?

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) products may be disposed of during the specific HHW collection events.  These collections take place twice annually, once in the fall and once in the spring.


What do I do with waste tires?

Franklin County participates in the Waste Tire Amnesty program, which is part of Kentucky’s Energy and Environment Cabinet’s (EEC) ongoing effort to rid Kentucky’s landscape of waste tires. The program is supported by the Waste Tire Trust Fund established by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1998. The legislation requires tire retailers to collect a $1 fee on all new replacement motor vehicle tires sold.

During a waste tire amnesty event, any Kentucky resident (regardless of county residence) can drop off their unwanted tires at a specific location at no cost. Amnesties are typically held at the host county’s State Highway Garage.

The waste tire amnesty program rotates through each county on a 3-year cycle, which is subject to change due to funding or other factors.
