Oil Based Paint Collection Day


City of Jackson to Collect Oil-Based Paint and Batteries January 28, 2012

Don’t know what to do with that old gallon of oil-based paint or old batteries?

Get rid of them the right way by bringing your oil-based paint and batteries to the City of Jackson’s collection site at the Farmers’ Market downtown from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, January 28, 2012.

“When you keep these wastes out of normal trash collection and get rid of them at our collection site, you help protect our environment by keeping harmful materials out of the landfill and water supply,” said Kathleen Huneycutt, Director of the City of Jackson’s Health and Sanitation Department.

If you are not sure your paint is oil-based, she added, look on your can for keywords such as oil, solvent, varnish, shellac, alkyd, volatile, flammable, acetone, turpentine, mineral spirits, paint thinner, aerosols, stoddard solvent, xylene, isopropyl alcohol, lacquer, toluene, lead based and petroleum distillate.  Any unmarked paint cans also may be dropped off at the collection site.

The collection site also will be accepting all batteries, from flashlight to car batteries.

The January 28 event is for residents only and will not be accepting paint or batteries from commercial businesses.  It is the first of four oil-based paint and battery collections scheduled for this year. The next three are April 28, July 28 and October 27.  All of the events are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Farmers’ Market Downtown.

Meanwhile, latex or water-based paint is accepted every Saturday at the old landfill on U.S. Hwy. 70.

The collection events are sponsored by the City of Jackson, including Stormwater Management, Health and Sanitation, and Keep Jackson Beautiful.
