Latex Paint Transfer

To enable the use of surplus latex paint, ECOS maintains a data base of not-for-profit organizations that can use latex paint, as well as color and quantity needed.

Only latex (water based) paint is acceptable. Paint must be usable, cannot have a sandy texture, cannot have mold growth, must be able to be stirred back to a usable product, and must be at least a half-gallon of same type and color.

Person with paint that meets all of the above criteria calls ECOS: The Environmental Clearinghouse at 370-4125 and asks for referral to a not-for-profit organization and arranges for transfer of the paint.
