SANTA CLARITA, CA – PaintCare, the nonprofit that runs the California Paint Stewardship Program on behalf of paint manufacturers, is sponsoring a special drop-off event to make it easier for households and businesses in the area to recycle their unwanted paint.
Paint events like this are an ongoing part of the PaintCare program, which has set up nearly 800 drop-off locations throughout California where residents and businesses can bring smaller amounts of unwanted paint year-round.
This event will accept larger amounts of paint and is a good opportunity for those who have accumulated paint over many years. Residents and businesses from any place in California can bring paint (not just those from Santa Clarita).
If you plan to take your paint to one of PaintCare’s year-round drop-off locations, please call the location before bringing your paint to check to see if they can accept the type and amount of paint you would like to recycle. Please visit PaintCare for locations and phone numbers.
