SWALCO Introduces a New Special Materials Collections Program

Beginning in late May 2022, SWALCO will begin to host a monthly drop-off service for Latex Paint, Small Single-Use Propane Tanks & Fire Extinguishers for residents.  

This new service is available by appointment only and will occur on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, with the exception of the first event which is set for May 25th.  

Special Materials Collection will be a fee-based service in order to cover the cost of proper handling, storing, and recycling/reuse of these high-demand items. Only Credit or Debit Cards are accepted for payment.

Please visit the Latex Paint Disposal Page, the Single Use Propane Canister Page, or the Fire Extinguishers Page for more information about what's accepted at these events, fees, and to schedule an appointment. Only items listed on these pages will be accepted at events.
