What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Artist and hobby paint

Artist/hobby paint is considered a hazardous substance and is only accepted for recycling at Washtenaw County's Home Toxics disposal site.


Recycle Right!

Do not put paint in your curbside recycling bin. Make sure to not throw away paint that contains toxic chemicals in the general trash. Paints with toxic chemicals need to be treated as hazardous waste.


Live Zero Waste!

To prevent wasting large amounts of paint, only use small amounts at a time, and always correctly store unused paint, so it does not dry out before you are able to use it all.


Do any other places accept donations of artist/hobby paint?

The SCRAP Box.
