Paint Recycling Program Begins in New York State

By All Posts, Announcements

The New York State Postconsumer Paint Collection Program began on May 1, 2022. The program is operated by PaintCare, a non-profit organization established by the paint industry to manage unwanted architectural coating products and provide for their recycling or proper disposal.

The program accepts leftover latex and oil-based paints and similar products at drop-off sites throughout the state. View a complete list of products accepted by PaintCare.

Paint Drop-Off SitesPaintCare will provide a collection network of over 300 drop-off sites across the state made up of paint retailers, local government facilities, and reuse stores. Find a paint drop-off site near you.

  • Drop-off sites will accept up to 5 gallons per customer per visit, some sites may accept more.
  • Paint should be in original containers with intact labels that identify the product.

The program is funded by a small fee – the PaintCare Fee – on the sale of all new paint in the state.  The program will provide for continuous and convenient collection year-round and accept all program products regardless of when they were purchased. No longer will you have to plan to bring unwanted oil-based paints for collection at your local Household Hazardous Waste collection event or dry out unwanted latex paint for household trash pick-up!

Business or Bulk Paint CollectionBusinesses, organizations, and households with 100 gallons of paint or more to recycle can request a free pick-up at their location, though some restrictions may apply. Submit a request form through PaintCare’s website.

Additional program information can be found on DEC’s NYS Postconsumer Paint Collection Program webpage.
