Polk County Recycling Center Paint Exchange
Drop off or exchange your paint starting April 1st through September 15. Employees of the recycling center
are required to inspect the paint before it is left. The paint must be in the original container, at least 1/3 full and
have a readable label. The paint has to have been stored in a warm area and never have been frozen. 
*We cannot accept lead-based paint for the paint exchange. (Bring lead based paint to a Clean Sweep Event for disposal.)
