Note: The RWSA normal daily paint collection will NOT be accepted on HHW Days due to logistical limitations. But please remember that you don’t have to wait for HHW collection now to dispose of your 1 gallon and 5 gallon latex and oil-based paints in their original containers. This is now a daily service at Ivy MUC.

Check their website for more information and details regarding acceptable items.
