Middlesex County has re-started some of the programs that were suspended due to the Covid19 lockdown earlier this spring. Paint collection at the South Plainfield Mary B. Mazepa Recycling Center at the end of Kenneth Avenue will resume its monthly schedule as of June 20.
Acceptable items are unused latex-based paint, oil-based paint, stains, varnishes, lacquers, thinners, spray paint (aerosol) and driveway sealer. All items must be labeled. Only paint products from residences can be taken.
Unacceptable items include empty paint containers or dried out latex paint, which can be thrown out with the household trash. Do not bring adhesives or any type of hazardous waste (call 732-745-4170 for information about Household Hazardous Waste collections). No commercial or industrial waste paint can be accepted.
South Plainfield hosts one of the County’s 10 paint drop-offs, on the third Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is open to any Middlesex County resident, as are all the other locations. The schedule is available on the Middlesex County website at www.middlesexcountynj.gov.
