Garbage Service


Welcome to the Town of Franklinton! As a resident within the Town limits, you have access to waste utility services directly through the town, which includes waste, recycling, bulk pickup, and some green waste/brush pickup.
To sign-up for the service, please verify that your address would be under our management by using this link filling in your address. The site will tell you if you sign up with GFL directly or with "your Municipality" which is The Town of Franklinton. This site is not 100% accurate, but it is a good check before you fill out our garbage application here.
The town encourages residents to apply for service prior to moving into your residence so GFL can get your containers to you within a reasonable time frame.
