FREE Latex Paint Drop-Off Friday and Saturday, April 18 and 19

Jackson County residents can dispose of cans of latex paint at no cost on Friday and Saturday, April 18 and 19, at Rogue Disposal and Recycling’s "FREE Latex Paint Drop-Off Event." The event, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days, is designed to help residents dispose of partially filled cans of latex paint in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.

The FREE Latex Paint Drop-Off Event takes place at Rogue Disposal’s Transfer Station, 8001 Table Rock Road, Medford.
   
Any
color or style of latex paint will be accepted at any size up to
5-gallon buckets. Cans of latex paint that are more than half full and
in good condition will be separated and placed on a "re-use table."
These cans will be free to anyone who wants them. 
   
This
event will not be open to businesses or commercial painters. 55-gallon
containers will not be accepted. Also, oil-based paint will not be
accepted. Rogue Disposal asks those who plan on taking advantage of the
"drop-off" to check the paint can labels for words like flammable,
combustible or alkyd. These are oil-based paints and cannot be accepted
at this event. To dispose of oil-based paint, or any other household
chemicals, residents can come to our Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off
Event on May 2 and 3 at the Jackson County Fairgrounds & Expo Park
in Central Point.
