Convenience center to start taking paint, stain

-A A +A

Unused paint and stain may be dropped off at the Post Oak convenience center at 123 Post Oak Valley Road, Rockwood, beginning Sept. 21.
Roane County Solid Waste Department is offering this service for Roane County residents to dispose of any unused paint or stain from their households.
No paint or stain from businesses will be accepted.
Managing and disposing of paint will increase the county's eligibility to host future annual Household Hazardous Waste events.
The state denied the department’s request for a Household Hazardous Waste Event in 2010.
The Post Oak facility will be available for paint disposal from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each Tuesday.
Only latex and oil-based paint and stain will be accepted.
No aerosol cans, chemicals or pesticides will be permitted.
Call the Roane County Recycling Center at 590-7779 for more information.
