There are recycling options for latex paint, while oil-based paint needs to be disposed at a hazardous waste facility (no cost for residents and most businesses). Learn more about how you can donate leftover paint or recycle or dispose of it properly.
Residents and business can drop off unwanted paint, stains and clear finishes for recycling at PaintCare locations at no charge. Participating PaintCare drop-off locations accept the following:
- House paint and primers (latex or oil-based)
- Deck and concrete sealers
- Clear finishes (e.g., varnishes, shellac)
All locations accept at least 5 gallons of paint from each customer. Paint must be dropped off in its original container with the original manufacturer’s label on it.
Dropping off leftover paint at PaintCare sites is free of charge. The program is supported by a fee placed on sales of new paint in the state.
