On Tuesday the Franklin Common Council unanimously approved details on a new contract for 2020 with Johns Disposal Services to provide weekly recycling and automated garbage services. Those details are coming soon in the next City Newsletter so it’s important you read about them.
Both recycling AND trash will be collected with automated trucks. ONLY carts will be collected (no more plastic bags, stuff on the side, thin cans, etc.)
Carts will be delivered beginning the week of January 2.
Recycling will be collected WEEKLY.
The current trash fee is $106.95. With the change in service that fee will become approximately $134.00.
Residents will be able to choose the size of carts/cans they want.
Franklin is one of a handful of communities Johns serves with manual garbage pickup. Johns envisions manual pickup going away completely next year.
Yard waste will have to be placed in paper bags, not plastic. And there will be FOUR pickups.
Mayor Steve Olson commented he’d prefer that carts not be visible from the street but wasn’t sure how, lacking an ordinance that would/could be enforced.
Again, please consult the next City Newsletter, either the one mailed to your home or on the city’s website.
