FREE, five-gallon pails of remixed exterior latex paint will be available beginning Monday September 18th, 2018 to non-profit agencies and county residents. Otsego County will have five-gallon pails of re-mixed exterior latex paint available free of charge on a first come first serve basis. .

The paint was collected as part of the county’s annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day held this past September. Paint collected during the event was re-mixed and packaged for distribution through the generosity of Golden Artist Colors, Inc. of New Berlin.

Whites, beiges, and grays are available. If a large quantity of one particular color is needed, please call in advance to confirm availability. Colors are subject to production.

Agencies that have taken advantage of this program in the past include the Orpheus Theatre, Otego Little League, Kinney Memorial Library in Hartwick, Glimmerglass Opera House, Morris tent and several municipalities.

For more information or to place an order for paint, please call the Otsego County Planning Department at 547-4225.
