In 2016, 25,093 pounds of paints were returned to the community. These paints did not have to be processed for disposal saving the District and residents money. That's the equivalent of 2,509 cans of paint - that's alot of paint!
The Reuse Room is open during the KC Recycling Depot business hours. It is filled with paints and stains in good condition collected from residents. Inventory is constantly changing, so stop in and check it out. Occasionally we have other items in this room. Currently we have envelopes, microwave trays and a few crafting supplies. Everything in this room is always FREE.
Rules of the Reuse Room: Please enter through the front door of our building. We have a limit of 5 cans per household. There is to be no mixing of paints in the room. Please clean up after yourselves by returning paint cans to the shelves. Make sure to sign out at the paint weigh station in the front hallway. Thanks for helping us keep this great service available to our residents.
REUSE IS ALWAYS BEST!
