Local company offers drop-off site for used paint cans


PEORIA (WEEK) — A local moving company branch gave Peoria residents the opportunity to clear some of the clutter out of their garage Saturday.

Jaiden Miamen with Two Men and a Truck Peoria says excess paint cans are a common household issue.

She says to make it worse, the closest disposal site is in Bloomington and it is only available for residents of McLean County.

Saturday, the company hosted a drop-off site for visitors to leave behind used paint cans of all shapes and sizes.

Miamen says they hope to help as many painters as possible this weekend.

“We have flyers around the area and we also put them in every moving file that we’ve been doing for the past few weeks,” Miamen said. “All of our clients have the information and can pass it along as well.”

The company plans to recycle and resell the paint cans they receive, and 10% of the proceeds will go to the Center for Prevention of Abuse.
