I would like to request a different size cart. How do I do that?

The property owner may exchange the trash container for a container of a different size upon payment to the City of the $50 cart fee for the trash container.  Changing the size of the recycle container is no cost.


Payments can be made in person at:


Public Works Department
City Hall
315 W Second Street
Frankfort, KY 40602


Payments can also be mailed to:


City of Frankfort
Attention: Public Works
P.O. Box 697
Frankfort, KY 40602


When mailing, please include information details such as:

  • Address
  • Cart request
  • Name
  • Phone number


During other months, the property owner must exchange the cart at the recycle center by appointment after paying the $50 service charge to City Hall. For more information contact Solid Waste at 502-875-8527 or Public Works at 502-875-8500.
