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.
