Local Nonprofits Host Paint Recycling Fundraiser
Apr 9, 2018 10:42 AM -
To celebrate Earth Day, two local nonprofits are teaming up to help residents rid their homes of unwanted latex paint in exchange for a cash donation to support their work with adults with disabilities. EarthPaint.org and Connect to Community, Inc., are sponsoring a latex paint recycling fundraiser (no oil-based paint please) on Saturday, April 21, from 11:00am to 3:00pm outside d'Vine Wine & Gifts, 243 E. Northwest Highway in Palatine. In exchange for a tax-deductible donation ($4 per gallon; $1 per quart), homeowners can dispose of all the half-empty paint cans that they have stored in their basements and garages in an environmentally-friendly way. Volunteers will be on hand to unload cars and provide donation receipts.
