Paint Recycling

Our paint recycling program diverts usable paint from the landfill and offers residents a safe way to dispose of old paint, in turn protecting local ecosystems.

Today’s trash.
Tomorrow’s treasure.

Every year, we prevent 40,000 gallons of paint from being dumped down the drain, reclaim 2 million pounds of materials, and educate over 700 local students and residents
