Broward and Palm Beach County residents can get free, high-quality exterior latex house paint through paint recycling programs. Here's how:


Broward residents can get up to 20 gallons of free, reblended exterior latex house paint from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 10, at the Broward County Waste and Recycling Services center in Pompano Beach. Color choices are turquoise, terra cotta, dark grey and beige; the paint comes in 5-gallon containers.

Pick up the paint at 2780 N. Powerline Road in Pompano Beach. Proof of residency is required. Call 954-765-4999 for more information.

Palm Beach County residents can get free exterior house paint, too. It's offered to residents of owner-occupied, single-family homes through the Solid Waste Authority Recycled Paint Donation Program. You can select from a variety colors, including beige and blue.

The SWA typically offers free paint for walls and trim for up to a 2,500-square-foot home (more for larger houses), said Joanna Aiken, community-services coordinator. For information, call 866-792-4636 or 561-697-2700 ext. 4701, or 4717 to get an application sent to you.
