Do you have old paint cans piling up in your garage? Bring them to Brooks Painting between Aug. 4 and 29 and the local painting company will safely recycle them, for free.
Paint cans may be brought to 2860 W. Covell Blvd., Suite 5, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The office is closed for lunch from noon to 1 p.m.
Brooks Painting employees will deliver the cans to the California Paint Care program for proper recycling. The program, which was created in October 2012 to manage consumers’ leftover paint, is funded by a paint care recovery fee charged on all architectural paint sold in California.
There is no retailer in Davis that is acting as a California Paint Care drop-off site, so Brooks Painting has stepped up to fill the void. Paint also may be taken to the Yolo County Landfill on County Road 28H for recycling.
Paint — no matter how old — must be in its original container, a Brooks Painting spokeswoman said, and the company cannot accept cans that are leaking or not properly secured.
Aerosol paints, thinners and automotive paints will not be accepted.
