The City of Frankfort and Franklin County collaborate on several solid waste programs throughout the year, including:
Household hazardous waste (HHW) programs
Animal Composting Facility
Franklin County offers a state of the art animal composting facility and access to the county dump for all Franklin County citizens. Visit Franklin County Solid Waste Management for additional information on this programs.
The City of Frankfort community is very aware and involved in keeping their city clean and tidy. You can help by joining the Clean Team.
The Frankfort / Franklin County Clean Team is a collection of volunteers committed to cleaning up the litter around Frankfort. The joint city-county Clean Team project began in April 2017.
How It Works
Through the program, bags, gloves and litter grabbers - and bright yellow Clean Team t-shirts - will be provided to anyone from individuals to big groups of employees from a business so that they can pick up litter. Funding for supplies is paid with litter abatement funding from the state. The program is intended to be used by both groups and individuals.
After doing their cleanup, participants will need to bring back the litter grabbers and bags of what they collected, so that officials can track the amount picked up through the program.
