Paint

Many of the sites listed below are PaintCare Program retail locations and paint must meet certain criteria:
This program is available to residents and businesses.

  • House paint and primers (latex or oil-based)
  • Stains
  • Deck and concrete sealers
  • Clear finishes (e.g., varnishes, shellac)
  • Original container with labels that can be read
  • Sealed containers
  • Containers 5 gallons or less in size.

Visit the Paintcare Program web page for more information, including steps for managing paint products or visit PaintCare for a complete list program and non-program products.

State transportation laws limit each vehicle to a maximum of 15 gallons of liquid (with a maximum of 5 gallons per container) or 125 pounds of solid material. Liquid limits are measured by the outer size of the container, not the contents.

Options for empty paint cans

For paint products generated by residents, follow these instructions.

Latex paint products

Latex paint cans containing 1 inch or more of hardened, semi-hardened, or liquid paint should be disposed of at Zero Waste Sonoma Household Hazardous Waste Facility for Residents or at the related programs.

Latex paint cans containing less than 1 inch of completely hardened paint should be disposed of in the garbage with the lid off.

For empty latex paint cans with very minimal dried paint residue, dispose of empty, non-dripping containers in the recycling cart with the lids off.

Oil-based paint products

Oil-based paint cans containing any amount of hardened, semi-hardened, or liquid paint should be disposed of at Zero Waste Sonoma Household Hazardous Waste Facility for Residents or at related programs.

For empty oil-based paint cans with very minimal dried paint residue, dispose of empty, non-dripping containers in the recycling cart with the lids off.
