- Latex paint
- Water-based stains
Paint and stain should be in original packaging, with label and secure lid. Do not combine or mix colors or products.
Oil-based paint and stains are hazardous materials, and are not accepted at this event. Residents and businesses should continue to take oil-based paints and stains to household hazardous waste facilities for proper disposal, at no cost.
- $1.25 / quart can
- $2.25 / gallon can
- $12.25 / 5-gallon can
Fees are charged per container, regardless of how much paint it contains.
Please do not combine or mix paint colors or different products -- the recycler needs the materials separated so that they can recycle the paint into the colors that they sell.

The unwanted latex paint is sent to GreenSheen EcoFriendly paint for recycling back into fresh latex paint. Old latex paint is screened, infused with mold inhibitor and resold as an environmentally friendly latex paint product.
