Can You Hire a Paint Disposal Service?

Safety-Kleen, Stericycle and Republic Services all provide pickup and disposal of paint and other household hazardous waste materials. Most offer pickups nationwide, while some have restrictions in coverage for certain locations.

PaintCare.org and Thomasnet.com have lists of alternative drop off options as well as regional and local hazardous material recycling companies. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency posts all federal regulations concerning proper handling and disposal of HHWs. Most of the disposal companies provide online guides to help decode product labels and determine which materials need special disposal. Never dispose of paint, any household chemicals or containers in standard trash pickups or waste dumps without consulting the label for proper disposal procedures.
