Are you in the Habit Yet? Aldermen Pearl Bransford and Dana McLendon along with local citizen Cecilia Melo-Romie participate in new campaign. It's easy to do! No sorting or separation is required. Just place your clean recyclables into blue transparent plastic bags and set them out for collection on your scheduled collection days. See a video on how to set up your home recycling and the many things you can put in the blue bag.
Blue Bags are available at many local retailers in your trashbag aisle.
What can we recycle in the Blue Bag?
The Recycling Division does NOT collect glass, Styrofoam or other household waste. These items must NOT be placed in your blue bag. Glass is accepted for recycling at Williamson County Recycling Centers located throughout the County.
Blue Bags are collected on your normal collection day. Please have your Blue Bags placed curbside by 7 a.m. on your collection day.
Your Blue Bags should be placed five (5) feet from your regular garbage containers.
Blue Bags are available at most local major grocery and hardware stores on the trash bag aisle and cost about the same as trashbags. The City of Franklin does not sell blue bags.
Do not use bags of another color because they will not be collected. Only correct material placed in the Blue Bags will be collected as recyclables.
If you have large pieces of cardboard, we ask that you break the cardboard down flat and place the blue bags on top of the flattened cardboard. All cardboard boxes that are not broken down and/or contain styrofoam, glass, or other household waste will be collected with your regular trash and not recycled.
Information on recycling electronics can be found on our BOPAE webpage.
Those living outside the city limits of Franklin, should contact Williamson Recycles for information on recycling in Williamson County.
