Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is there a limit on how many cans of paint can be disposed of at one time during your collection periods?

It is illegal to transport more than 15 gallons or 125 pounds of hazardous waste in one trip. For your convenience, unused paint can now be taken to a local PaintCare drop-off site. Please click the link below to locate a drop-off site in your area.

Residents are also welcome to come take paint to a collection site during a collection period as many times as they need to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials. Please organize your hazardous waste accordingly before transporting it to an event.

· Put like chemicals together.
· Label materials that are not in their original containers.
· Make sure containers are not leaking and lids are tightly sealed.
· Pack household hazardous wastes in a cardboard box and place in the trunk of your car so that it does not spill when transported. Be prepared to leave your boxes.
