Teachers, take our survey!
Porter County residents have the opportunity to recycle their old latex paint and purchase usable recycled latex paint at the City of Hobart’s Department of Public Works, thanks to an intergovernmental agreement between the Recycling and Waste Reduction District of Porter County and the City of Hobart.
The agreement permits residents from Porter County to purchase recycled paint produced by the City of Hobart for $3 per gallon. Porter County not-for-profit organizations and government agencies can obtain the recycled product for FREE.
