How to Dispose or Recycle Paint Can and Paint

Beautiful Life

Several containers of paint (Latex or oil-based) have been sitting in my garage, as the left-over from the kitchen and restroom remodeling of my residence.  It is time to properly dispose them, as I was informed by my contractors that these are hazardous waste materials.  But they don't know how to dispose them.

Thanks to  We can dispose them freely.  3 steps:

1. About Paint.

2. Find your local disposal facility.  (US-only)

3. There are limitations about maximum of each visit.  In Santa Clara County, I made appoints to dispose them via

Household Hazardous Waste Program

5 containers of 5 gallons each transported by a vehicle, because of the law limit of how much a vehicle can legally hold.
