What am I supposed to do with this paint can?

Earlier this month we had a fabulous workshop for community members with staff from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.  They provided very practical tips for homeowners and community groups who are concerned about clean air and water. 


I wanted to share these great resources with those of you who were unable to attend.  Please pass them on to your friends and neighbors.
