Methow Recycles to begin accepting paint in November
Methow Recycles staff are going through training for their newest program — paint recycling. The center will accept house paint, primers, stain, sealers and clear coatings, but no spray cans or solvents can be accepted.
The program will not accept items labeled for industrial or agricultural use, and paint must be in its original container (no larger than 5 gallons) and secured with a lid.
Methow Recycles next repair café is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon Nov. 20 in the parking lot of The Cove in Twisp, across from the Twisp Post Office. For more information about the events, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Items must be small enough to be carried, not leaking fluids and not hazardous in any way. Please bring parts needed to complete the repair. Attendees should wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.
In other recycling news, Methow Recycles’ Take it or Leave it tent will be open for the last time before winter on Nov. 13.
