Keep Tyler Beautiful and the Tyler Solid Waste Department are hosting a Paint Recycling/Collection event on Saturday, May 21 from 8 a.m. to noon. This event is for Tyler residents who have old and partially used buckets of that they need to dispose

Residents may bring their cans of paint to the Solid Waste employee parking lot in the 300 block of N. Bois D’Arc Ave., where Solid Waste employees and technicians will be on hand to unload vehicles and make sure that the paint is handled responsibly. Residents may bring a total of 25 gallons of oil-based or latex paint per household.

“This is a great opportunity to dispose of paint in an environmentally friendly manner for City of Tyler residents,” said Keep Tyler Beautiful Board Chair Sarah Wruck. “It really is a great chance to get rid of any leftover paint that you have just sitting around in your garage or storage room.”

The Solid Waste Department is asking that residents not bring epoxy or aerosol paints. Residents are asked to bring a current water bill and their driver’s license to show proof of residency. No professional or commercial painters please.

The Solid Waste employee parking lot is located just north of the intersection of West Locust Street and North Bois D’Arc Avenue, near the bus station.

This event is sponsored by Keep Tyler Beautiful and the City of Tyler Solid Waste Department.
