Paint is the largest component of the hazardous waste stream in Beaufort County, according to county recycling coordinator Carol Murphy. The county collects thousands of gallons of paint -- enough paint to fill up a tractor trailer truck every other month. That paint is taken to county's hazardous waste contractor's plant in Valdosta, Ga., to be turned into boiler fuel, she added.
