We’re designating April as Spring Sweep Month ! Take part in just one or all of our events to help clean up Franklin County throughout the month of April.

Judge Wells and the Solid Waste Department are running a contest – take a photo of yourself and/or your family picking up litter and send it in (to brittany.woodward@franklincounty.ky.gov) for your chance at a $100 giftcard to your favorite Frankfort restaurant! This promotion is open to all County and City residents.

The Landfill Voucher Program is operating every weekend for free dumping WITH a voucher. Use of this program will count towards your 4 vouchers per year. If you’ve used the voucher program at any point since 2019, you are already signed up and should have a voucher ID number. If you do not have a voucher ID number, you can sign up here: www.franklincounty.ky.gov/trash-vouchers.

We are running two coordinated litter pick up events – one April 13-15 where residents can check out equipment from our Solid Waste Department to clean up their area, and Main Street Clean Sweep on Earth Day 4/22 with help from Bluegrass Greensource and Commonwealth Credit Union from our office at 321 W Main St.

The Franklin County Conservation District will be holding their Scrap Metal Collection Event from April 22 to April 24 at their office at 103 Lakeview Ct. Hours are 8 AM to 430 PM on Thursday and Friday, and 8 AM to 12 PM on Saturday.

On April 24th is our big Spring Clean day! We will have dumpsters available from 8AM to 2PM in six locations in the County for your use – Bald Knob Fire Station, Old Peaks Mill School, Lakeview Park, Owenton Road Fire Station, Evergreen Road Fire Station, and at the Road Department. We will also be holding out Spring Household Hazardous Waste Collection event at the Frankfort Recycling Center that day from 8 AM to 12 PM. Visit our website for a list of all things we will be accepting: www.franklincounty.ky.gov/solid-waste-management.

Finally, Yard Waste Wednesday will return at the Road Department on April 28. Bring your leaves, limbs, and other yard and garden debris to 100 Lewis Ferry Road between 8 AM and 12 PM each Wednesday until November 3.

We hope you’ll join us and do your part to help Keep Franklin County clean!
