Visit the Clean Community System website for a list of materials that can be recycled--many of these items are banned from the landfill and the Transfer Station.
What should I do with paint?
Paint, in liquid form, is not allowed in our solid waste facilities. This is for the protection of groundwater, due to the leaching problems consistent with liquids. Once paint is dried out, however, we can accept it as normal refuse. Citizens can remove lids from paint cans to dry it out, or drizzle the paint on newspapers, scrap carpet, or old furniture they are going to dispose. Once the paint is dry, it can be placed in with the normal trash to go to the landfill or transfer station.
