BATON ROUGE, LA. (NBC33) — Ascension Parish is holding a Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day and Paint Swap on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Ascension Parish residents can bring household hazardous materials and leftover paint to Lamar-Dixon Expo Center at 9039 St. Landry Road in Gonzales.
Employees will man the latex paint swap area taking in reusable paint and mixing it in five-gallon containers. The objective of the swap is to recycle unused paint. The paint is collected, screened, and blended by volunteers. The reusable paint is then sent to the Salvation Army.
Ascension Parish residents are invited to drop off household hazardous materials, paint, paint thinner, florescent bulbs, batteries, auto products, metallic mercury, tires, electronic equipment, and lawn and garden products.
