Gila County latex paint and computer recycling/disposal
The Buckhead Mesa Landfill will coordinate a latex paint recycle day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 16.
Bring in leftover latex paint for disposal or recycling to the landfill. All unusable paint will be properly disposed of; the good paint will be bulked and distributed. Only latex paint will be accepted at this event.
To dispose of other painting supplies: pop the lid and let oil paints and varnishes dry to a hard substance, as a solid they may be disposed of in small quantities with household trash (adding kitty litter will advance the drying).
This is also a great time to drop off your old computers, monitors and printers at the landfill for recycling.
