Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

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

ANSWER:
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.
