FREE Latex Paint Recycling for Genesee County Residents

 Residents of Genesee County can now bring their left-over, unused, and unwanted latex paint to the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity Restore in the City of Flint to be recycled at NO CHARGE! Regular business hours are Tuesday through Saturday 9a.m. – 5p.m.

 The paint collected at the Restore is transported to a processing facility in Battle Creek, operated by ePaint LLC, where the paint is then made into a new paint product called “Everybody’s Paint” or “ePaint” for short. This new paint product is then returned to the Restore in the City of Flint where residents can purchase new paint for under $15 per gallon! Paint colors even have their own Michigan-made touch such as “Keep Lake Michigan Blue”, “Mackinaw Green” and “Petoskey Stone”.

This program has been organized by the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission with support from the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity and Keep Genesee County Beautiful.

 For more information please contact the Genesee County Recycle Hotline at (810) 762-7744; or the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity Restore at (810) 766-9089. Restore Hours are Tuesday-Saturday 9:00a.m.-5p.m.

The Winter Snow Plow Season is Approaching 

Policy on Reimbursement for Damaged Mailboxes

For damages caused by Genesee County Road Commission snow removal operations, a reimbursement to the property owner shall be made in the amount not to exceed $20.00 upon presentation of a receipt for purchase of said mailbox.

It has been the practice of the Genesee County Road Commission to replace, or reimburse homeowners $20.00 toward replacement of, all mailboxes damaged by snow or by our plows whenever we are made aware of the problem. The replacement had consisted of a standard mailbox and a recycled sign post and was installed by our own crews.

Although we will continue to reimburse homeowners $20 for a new mailbox in such instances, recent reductions in Road Commission manpower and budget make it impossible for us to continue to do the actual installation. When a mailbox damage claim is reported to the Road Commission for damages caused by snow removal operations a rembursement to the the homeowner of $20.00 upon presentation of a receipt for purchase of said mailbox.

It is the intent of this policy that the Manager-Director of the Genesee County Road Commission will deal with the public fairly when handling reimbursement for mailboxes which may have been damaged by Road Commission vehicles.

Receipts may be mailed or brought into our office:
