Organic Recycling Center

Address: 2095 U.S. 1 Franklinton, NC 27525
As far as I know, this place only takes yard waste of a specific type. I spoke with a woman there a few years ago, but I can’t remember the rules. If anyone knows about this place, please send me an update. I also am unsure of the hours of operation.

Address (main office): 113 Market Street – Louisburg, NC 27549
(Below is quoted directly from the Franklin County website linked above)
The purpose of the convenience center is to provide solid waste services to the household residents of the unincorporated areas of Franklin County.
No industry, business, institution, or other nonresidential user shall deposit solid waste or recyclables at any of the said locations without express permission from the Solid Waste Manager or his duly authorized representative.
Nonresidential generators of solid waste are required to take such waste directly to the solid waste transfer station or dispose of it in an alternative fashion.
Though the landfill and the convenience center are located at the same location (Site #12 Timberlake Rd.), they have separate functions.
Site 12 and the landfill is the only site that accepts yard waste, appliances, metal, tires and concrete and brick. Site 12 is located at the entrance of the landfill (Timberlake Road off Highway 56 west). The cost to dump at the landfill is $60 per ton and there is a 3:30 cut-off time for the landfill itself.
