County reuse program offers free paint

Paint and other reusable products are available to the public, free of charge, through the Yolo County Division of Integrated Waste Management’s reuse program.

The program is an extension of the household hazardous waste drop-off program, open to the public every Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Yolo County Central Landfill, 44090 County Road 28H, between Woodland and Davis. During February, the reuse program will provide additional free paint on Fridays.

“Our entire household hazardous waste program has been a hit. At the moment, though, our reuse program shelves runneth over with paint,” said John Bencomo, director of planning and public works. “Typically, we offer 10 gallons of paint per household, but in February, we are expanding that offer to 25 gallons of paint free of charge. Don’t miss this Frugal February opportunity to help reduce waste.”

Patrons of Yolo County’s reuse program may take up to 25 gallons of paint per household on Fridays in February for spring cleaning projects such as painting an old shed or refreshing a rental. A variety of paint is available in many colors and types.

Local residents also can turn in their unused house paint at three Yolo County collection sites under the California Paint Stewardship Program, established by a 2010 law. The law required paint manufacturers to develop a take-back system for leftover paint from household and commercial consumers.

Yolo County collection sites are at:

* Sherwin-Williams, 1392 E. Main St. in Woodland; 530-661-6994;

* Kelly Moore, 831 Harbor Blvd. in West Sacramento; 916-372-2302; and

* Kelly Moore, 538 N. East St. in Woodland; 530-662-9738.

For more information on the county’s reuse program and proper disposal of household hazardous waste, call 530-666‑8856 or visit www.yolocounty.org.
