We take everything from paint to pool chemicals and many things in between. These products should be household in nature and quantity. There is a limit of 10 gallons on any single liquid type. See all accepted items below. Over 90% of the material collected is reused or recycled through one of our vendors or our on-site Paint Reuse Program. Click here for more details.

 Safety precautions to follow:

  • Do not mix different materials together in the same container
  • Keep products in original containers with legible labels
  • Place containers in cardboard boxes or plastic totes with lids securely fastened to transport safely
