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.
