What about paint?
We do not accept paint at this event. Thanks to an Oregon law enacted in 2010, there are now local paint stores that will accept your latex and oil-based paints year-round. Go to paintcare.org and enter your zip code to find participating stores in your area. We recommend calling the store to make sure they have room to accept your paint before you visit.

Waste Prevention tips
Buy only what you need then use it up.
If you end up with products left over, share them with family, friends and neighbors. Read the labels before you buy. Watch for words like “danger,” “warning,” and “caution.” Follow the directions carefully. Whenever possible, consider using a safer alternative.
Dispose of these items safely—at our Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Event!
