This is a drop off program, load items in your car, bring proof of residency for Escambia County, and drive up. Materials will be off-loaded for you; you do not even have to get out of your car. Large amounts of electronics must be brought to landfill. Call for an appointment. We will not accept more than 4 tires per household per vehicle at a Regional Roundup event.

Free Reblended Paint
We take good latex paint, screen it, reblend it, rescreen and recant into five-gallon buckets. We give this reblended paint away for the cost of a new empty five-gallon bucket with a new lid. Colors include creamy white, blue, green and other colors depending on what we have it stock. Call (850) 937-2160 for more info.
