Paint recycling event returns Saturday

June 5, 2013 by

Rural living can present its own unique sets of challenges where mundane tasks are concerned; such as what to do with old paint sitting in the garage.

PaintCare has the answer to this question, bringing back their paint recycling drive/drop-off event to Lakeview on Saturday, June 8.

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., locals can drop off, at no charge, their old paint materials at the Lake County Road Department shops, located just west of Roberta Road on Hwy 140.

PaintCare is a non-profit organization that overseees the reuse, recycling and proper disposal of paint.  The group started the state’s first paint recycling program three years ago, and the collection event serves as a convenient opportunity for locals to rid themselves of old paint in a safe, clean fashion.

PaintCare currently has 100 permanent drop-off sites around the state, but none are located in the vicinity of Lakeview.

There are no restrictions to household drop-offs of paint materials, but businesses that have more than 220 pounds, or 25 gallons, of oil-based paint or other hazardous waste products will face some restrictions.

Details of these restrictions are listed on the PaintCare web site at www.paintcare.org/lakeview.

Latex or oil-based house paints, primers, stains, deck and concrete sealers and clear finishes (included shellacs, varnishes, lacquers and urethanes) are the product types that will be accepted at the event.
