Paint Recycling

Recycle your unused, unwanted latex and oil-based paint & stains for FREE. Your voluntary cash donations are greatly appreciated and will support the Foothills 4-H Club youth volunteers who will do the heavy lifting for you. You get to stay in the comfort of your vehicle. It is Saturday, October 9th, from 10a.m. to 2p.m.

Also on this day is the City of Lakewood Cleanup Day at Jeffco Stadium, 500 Kipling Street from 8a.m. – 2p.m. These two events give you a great opportunity to get rid of stuff before the snow flies!

This event is provided to the community by the Sustainable Applewood and Sustainable Morse Park neighbor volunteers. Sustainability doesn’t stop at our neighborhood boundaries; open to any Coloradoan who has paint to recycle, regardless of city of residency. UNLIMITED AMOUNTS!
