How to recycle paint

Paint cans

Did You Know?

For paint cans with paint still remaining in them, consider donating to churches or community groups who may need them. To recycle an empty can, leave the lid off to let it dry, a thin layer of dry paint is acceptable for recycling purposes. The paint can is then recyclable as normal steel would be in your area. If you have leftover, unwanted paint in good condition, consider donating the paint for reuse to:

• A local charity

• A high school drama department

• Your place of worship

• A Habitat for Humanity chapter
