Hours of operation

The centers also accept latex paints that are still in liquid form. However, it is recommended that new paints or latex paint that is still in good condition be donated to neighbors or community groups.
If you have unusable or poor quality latex paint still in liquid form, dry out any remaining liquid with an absorbent material such as newspaper or kitty litter. Once the latex paint has been solidified, you can place the paint can in the regular household waste container for collection.
Also, propane tanks can be disposed of at one of the two Home Chemical Collection Centers. You can also dispose of empty oxygen tanks. Larger tanks such as those used for RV’s, forklifts, or fixed kitchen gas supply are not accepted.
The centers are available to non-commercial residents only.
