FREDERICK, Md. - The Frederick County Recycling Office is looking for volunteers to help with a project that keeps usable latex paint from going to the landfill and which benefits other county residents in the process.
From 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 11, the fall usable latex paint recycling event will be held at the Reichs Ford Road Landfill maintenance building. Volunteers are needed to help unload usable latex paint from cars, opening and stirring paint cans, and in screening and mixing various shades of paint into buckets, for reuse by customers of the Frederick Nonprofit Building Supply.
Volunteers are asked to assist for two hours if possible, and should plan to wear old clothes in case of contact with paint. If you or your group are interested in helping, call the recycling office at 1-301-696-2960.
