BOPAE Drop-Off Temporarily Closed

Post Date:03/20/2020 12:31 PM


Franklin, TN - Effective Monday March 23rd, the City’s Batteries, Oil, Paint, Anti-Freeze, and Electronics (BOPAE) Drop-off program will be temporarily suspended. This is out of concern for the safety of our residents and staff during the current Coronavirus outbreak.

There are several options for those that wish to continue to participate:

  • Place dried latex paint cans in your regular roll-out container for pickup (use cat litter in the can to dry the paint).

  • Visit Williamson County Convenience Centers. You can find their locations at this link:

  • Store lithium batteries or check local hardware stores to see if they will accept them.

  • Take car batteries to any automotive parts center.

  • Check with any express or quick oil change locations to see if they will accept waste oil.

  • Store at home until our City facility re-opens.

“We continue to modify our operations in response to the Coronavirus outbreak,” says City Administrator Eric Stuckey. “We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during this time.”
