NEW-City of Franklin, TN Compost Facility Presentation

Here are the steps you will need to take to purchase compost:


-Purchase your $20 per cubic yard voucher at the Utility Billing Office located at 109 3rd Avenue South

-Vouchers are redeemable on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, between 7:00a.m.-2:00p.m.  (We are closed on all legal holiday.)

-Redeem your vouchers at the compost facility located at 1116 Incinerator Road

-We are equipped to load compost into open bed pickup trucks, trailers, and dump trucks only


 Compost is only available on a first come/first served basis.


To calculate how much compost you will need, you can use this formula:

Length x width x depth / 27 = Cubic Yards. 

For example if your space is; 4ft length x 8ft width x 1.5ft depth / 27 = 1.8 Cubic Yards  


The compost facility manager is Todd King.  If you have any other questions you may reach him at (615) 210-7298 or todd.king@franklintn.gov .

If you have any further questions about payments, you may call Utility Billing at 615-794-4572.
