Latex paint recycling offered today in Bel Air


You can help people paint their homes simply by supplying the paint.

Bring usable latex paints in labeled, tightly sealed containers to Kefauver's Lumber Co., 1505 Churchville Road in Bel Air, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today and help supply the paint for this season's fourth and final latex paint recycling program.

This year, 540 gallons have been collected. 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 program was begun to provide a way of disposing of hazardous materials properly.
