WATERVILLE — Waterville residents will soon have a place to get rid of their excess paint.

Recycling centers throughout Douglas County, including the Waterville Community Recycling Center at 510 N. Chelan Ave., have partnered with PaintCare Washington to accept up to five gallons of paint at a time per person. Douglas County solid waste manager Becci Piepel said the program will start on July 7 after collection bins that were delayed by supply chain issues arrive.
