temporary reduced fees to upsize your trash cart

The City of Frankfort is temporarily reducing the upsize fee for larger trash carts to $25. The reduced fee will be in effect July 8th through October 1st. Only the property owners will be allowed to upsize their carts during this time period. After October 1st the upsize charge will go back to $50. Recycle carts will not be downsized at this time, as we hope this is only a temporary issue.

The price of overflow bags has also been reduced for a limited time beginning July 8th through October 1st. During the time the price per roll is $4 and they are available for purchase at both Kroger stores.

All garbage/household trash must be containerized, either in the City cart or prepaid overflow bags.

Recyclable items: Plastic bottles and jugs, aluminum cans steel cans, corrugated cardboard.

Non-recyclable items: Paper products of all types, glass bottles and jars, plastic bags or plastic wrap, any type of Styrofoam or plastic or metal hangers, plastic cups, bowls, and clamshell packages.

Effective August 1st any recycle cart with paper products, glass or trash will be tagged and not emptied. Repeat violations could be fined and have their recycle cart taken.

To schedule a cart change out or for more information call Division of Solid Waste at (502) 875-8527 or Public Works at (502) 352-2088.
