PaintCare is a non-profit organization established by the American Coatings Association to implement Paint Stewardship Programs on behalf of the paint manufacturers in states that pass paint stewardship laws. To learn more about the importance of recycling and using up leftover paint, or to find a drop-off site near you, visit www.paintcare.org.

In general we accept all house paint and primers, stains, sealers, and clear coatings (such as shellac and varnish) but we do not accept aerosols (spray cans), solvents, and products intended for industrial or non-architectural use.
