Franklin City Hall

Out of concern for the safety of residents and staff during the current coronavirus outbreak, the city of Franklin is temporarily suspending its Batteries, Oil, Paint, Anti-Freeze and Electronics (BOPAE) drop-off program.

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 any of the Williamson County Convenience Centers.  
  • 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 city facility re-opens. 

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