Trash Services


Welcome to the Town of Franklinton! As a citizen of the Town, you have access to waste utility services which includes trash, 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 and filling in your address. The site will tell you if you sign up with waste industries directly or with 'your Municipality' which is us. This is not 100% accurate, but that site is a good check before you fill out our trash application here.

If you want to sign up for automatic payments, please use this form here.

Regular service
We contract with Waste Industries to service your trash and recycling and the regularly scheduled service day is on Fridays though we would recommend having your trash cans out Thursday night.

The trash is collected every week and the recycling is collected every other week.

Green waste/brush service
We also provide green waste/brush pickup service on Thursdays. If you collect and gather the waste yourself (instead of using a contractor) and put it near the curb Wednesday night, we will pick it up for you during the day on Thursday.

Please bag any loose leaves or smaller brush, we will not pick up if these items are not in a bag.

Bulk waste service
Bulk waste includes any larger items such as furniture, appliances, and other household items. Please note that we cannot take electronics, like TVs or computers, or hazardous waste materials, like oil or paint or other chemicals.

The bulk waste service is scheduled for Friday mornings, so please have your items out Thursday night.

Please call ahead to schedule a pickup of bulk items. We will generally not pickup if you have not called in.

Billing Info
The bills will be mailed out on the 1st of the month and are due by the 20th of the month. If not paid by the due date, a $15 late charge will be applied to your account. If not paid by the end of the billing month your cans will be picked up and a $25.00 fee will be applied to your account and all charges will need to be paid to have them returned.

If you have any questions please feel free to call Town Hall at 919-494-2520.
