HUMBOLDT PARK — A nonprofit dedicated to recycling latex and oil paint is popping up this weekend in Humboldt Park — and needs your help.
Earth Paint will be open Friday-Sunday at 2547 W. North Ave., a few blocks from the Humboldt Park-Wicker Park border. Neighbors can volunteer by helping recycle paint or by bringing over donations of unused latex and oil paint.
Hours are 3-8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday.
This weekend’s pop-up will be used to explore the possibility of a long-term presence in Chicago, volunteer Cherie Travis said in an email.
In addition to volunteering your time to recycle paint this weekend, you can drop off donations of unused latex or oil paints at the pop-up for a tax-deductible fee. Quart donations cost $2.50, gallons are $5, buckets are $18 and spray cans are $2. Money collected goes toward salaries of employees. You may also make a monetary donation here.
