Oil-based paints are considered household hazardous waste and need to be brought to the Haz Bin, located at 7501 Grade Lane.

There is no longer a latex paint recycling program. Habitat ReStore at 4044 Taylorsville Road will accept new, unopened paint with a complete label. No used or opened paint or stains or any chemicals are accepted. 


How to dispose of used or opened latex paint:

  • If there is only a small quantity of paint in the can, remove the lid and let stand in a well-ventilated area away from children or pets until dry. 

  • Containers with dried latex paint may be placed in tightly sealed plastic bags and placed in garbage containers for pickup. The metal lid may be recycled.

  • Oil based paint or lead paint must be taken to Haz Bin for disposal.
