Clifton Park, NY (NEWS10) — Phil Barrett, supervisor of Clifton Park Town, announced the results of the town’s paint and stain recycling program, which began in May. As of Friday morning, the town had recovered £77,417 of coating products. These were all collected and properly recycled or disposed of by town contractors.
Residents of Clifton Park are eligible to bring paint, stains, and other coatings to the Transfer Station on Thursdays from 7:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Transfer Station employees will guide recyclers through the process and We will help you put the qualified coatings into a special container.
According to Barrett, the process is quick and easy. Paint that the town cannot dispose of can be disposed of free of charge on the town’s Hazardous Waste Day in September.
“We’ve been very excited to start this recycling program because we’ve received a lot of inquiries over the years about how to dispose of paint and stains,” says Supervisor Barrett. “As expected, the program has been very popular and has been a great addition to the town’s recycling options for residents.”
Containers brought in for recycling must be 5 gallons or less and must not be leaking or empty. The container must have the original manufacturer’s label. For more information on transfer stations or paint recycling programs, visit his website in the town of Clifton Park.
