Do you have left over paint? Most of us do. Now you have somewhere to dispose of it! Decatur Presbyterian Church will hold its 2nd Annual Paint Recycling Fundraiser on Saturday, March 8 from 10 am until 2 pm. Look for signage that directs you to DPC’s rear parking lot on Church Street in downtown Decatur.
DPC will earn $1 for each gallon can. Proceeds will be used to fund other recycling projects. You will be charged for disposal of your old latex paint ($3/gallon can) and oil-based paint ($4/gallon can) regardless of how much paint remains in the can.
Disposal of Household Hazardous Waste (i.e. paint) can be a problem. The City of Decatur does not recycle or dispose of your paint, and to put in a landfill, the paint must first be dried. Atlanta Paint Disposal, the event’s vendor, not only keeps your paint out of the landfills; it recycles it into environmentally friendly paint. APD sells their recycled paint to contractors at a discount.
