Paint Reuse Program

This info is directly from an email from the City of Mesa.  If you've got some leftover paint you can donate it for the use of the community.  And, if you'd like some free paint to beautify your neighborhood: paint over grafitti, walls, or even the exterior of your home, read below for the guidlines:

The City of Mesa Solid Waste Management Department’s Paint Reuse Program is a convenient and environmentally friendly way to redistribute unused latex paint. The paint is collected through the City’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection events and reused to beautify Mesa's neighborhoods. Prior to redistribution, the latex paint is sorted, mixed by shade (light, medium and dark) and stored in five-gallon containers, which are then made available to Mesa residents and non-profit organizations free of charge.

Paint Reuse Program guidelines:

· The request for paint must come from a Mesa resident or non-profit specifically for "non-commercial exterior painting."

· All appropriate documentation must be completed prior to obtaining paint.

· The City of Mesa does not warrantee or in any way guarantee the purity, quality, consistency, etc. of the paint distributed.

· Paint can only be used on exteriors. A label will be placed on all containers outlining the proper use and disposal of the paint. A quality color and durability disclaimer will also be on the label.

· Paint will not be delivered. The person requesting the paint must coordinate pick-up.

Distribution of the paint is done on a first come, first serve basis, subject to availability. For more information, visit www.mesarecycles.org or call (480) 644-2690.
