We accept dried-out latex and water-based paint in your regular trash, and as trash at our Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station.
See instructions for oil-based paint
All residual/leftover latex and water-based paint must be hardened or dried.
Any wet or soft paint that could spill will be left as unacceptable by collection crews.
Fluid paint can spill before, during, and after collection. To avoid messes, we require that all paint be dried before we can accept it as trash.
Effective April 22, 2020 we are suspending the paint giveaway program to limit the exposure of COVID-19 to our customers and employees. We will re-open the program at a later date.
