– paint cans that are at least 1/2 full

 

Residents interested in donating their paint, can do so by dropping off cans to the Winfield Recreation Centre between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Monday to Friday. Please place paint in the bin provided, located on the south side of the building. located at 9830 Bottom Woodlake Rd. Paint can be dropped off between now and July 8.
