PROMOTE an organization, or charity.
PURGE your community of paint waste.
Register your group with our online fundraiser registration form below and confirm the date details with our office. Spring and fall are the most requested time slots and those weekends can fill up early.
Begin advertising your event immediately! By giving ample notice, you can ensure people in your community are aware of the opportunity to recycle their paint cans and support your great cause! Make sure that everyone understands there’s fees for paint collection and this is a fundraiser for your organization. If someone offers to help design ads, insist on proofing them for necessary content prior to distribution.
* Certain criteria must be included in your advertisement: LATEX only! We can not accept any paint if it has been mixed with anything, including other paint!
We’ll deliver totes and a cash box to your location 24 hours before your event, used to store the paint cans and proceeds you collect. As you collect the paint cans, you’ll also accept the fee for each can collected.
AFTER the Event
After the event, we’ll come by and retrieve all the totes and proceeds collected. At which time, we’ll verify with you a can count. Each tote neatly fits 12 gallon cans, or 2 five gallon buckets.
Your fundraising event will generate $2 on every 1 gallon ($5) can collected, $10 on every 5 gallon ($20) bucket collected and $1 on every 1 quart ($2) can collected. Some groups have collected thousands of cans in just a few hours. You will be mailed a check in 3-5 business days for your portion collected.
As long as you’re organized, you promote your event and you have a motivated team, you should do very well for your cause!
Most events run 4-5 hours on a Saturday morning and can generate $800-$2000 and up for your group. Success ultimately relies on how effectively you advertise your fundraiser.
