You can help people paint their homes simply by supplying the paint.
Bring usable latex paints in labeled, tightly sealed containers from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday to Harrison's Paint Center, 101 N. Main St. in Bel Air, and help launch Harford County's second annual Latex Paint Recycling Program. Last year, residents contributed enough paint to fill 500 one-gallon cans.
The donated paint will be mixed on site. After being sent to the Loading Dock, a Baltimore-based building material recycler, the paint is distributed free or sold at a low price to low-income housing projects.
Sponsored by the Susquehannock Environmental Center, the Harford County Office of Recycling and participating stores, the paint recycling program was developed to properly dispose of ++ hazardous materials. Future paint collection dates and sites are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 15, Anderson's Hardware, 900 Pulaski Highway, Joppa; Aug. 12, Bay Hardware, 202 Congress Ave., Havre de Grace; and Sept. 16, Kefauver's Lumber Co., 1505 Churchville Road, Bel Air.
