Paint

You can take your unused paint to your nearest HHW Collection Center. Most locations accept all paints, thinners, and other solvents. Be sure to call first because a few locations only accept latex paint.

California’s PaintCare program is an industry sponsored product stewardship solution to properly manage leftover consumer paint. You can bring leftover paint to one of these participating locations. Please call first to assure they have storage capacity.

  • Dunn-Edwards, 12475 Mariposa Avenue, Suite A, Victorville, (760) 245-2442, 20-gallon limit
  • Sherwin-Williams, 11938 Hesperia Road, Hesperia, (760) 949-4941, 5-gallon limit
  • Mountain Hardware, 1390 Highway 2, Wrightwood, (760) 249-3653, 5-gallon limit

For empty paint cans – cans where the paint is entirely dried and does not flow – pop the lid off and throw your recycling container

Buy Only What You Need
