Special Collection Events

The 2017 DKMM Special Collection events have now ended.  Thank you to all of the Delaware, Knox, Marion and Morrow residents who participated in these events, which reduced waste going to landfills.

Some materials collected will require a fee.  These fees are outlined in the flyer linked above.

 

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR DRYING PAINT

To dispose of paint properly please see instructions below:

  • In a well-ventilated area, air dry paint away from children and pets. Add absorbent materials, such as shredded newspaper or kitty litter and allow to dry completely. Some home improvement stores sell an inexpensive paint hardener (check your local stores). Once the paint has solidified in the can, throw the can, paint and lid (still removed) in with your regular trash. You can also donate "good" leftover paint to local community groups, theater groups, schools, churches and others who need or want it. You may even be able to take a tax deduction. Your local Habit for Humanity Re-Store will also accept good, used paint.

THESE EVENTS ARE LIMITED TO DISTRICT RESIDENTS ONLY.

No businesses, schools, industrial, or institutional hazardous waste will be accepted.
