Paint Collection Day

Recycle Paint. Protect the environment. Help the community.

In May of 2022, New York became a Paint Steward State, committing to recycling paint in collaboration with manufacturers, retailers, and recyclers. Last year’s event was the first of its kind in our area and we were excited to be able to expand the list of items kept out of landfills to include paint. Learn more about New York State’s paint recycling program.

Start saving your unwanted paint for our next Paint Collection Day!

  • Date: Saturday, October 21, 2023
  • Time: 10am – 2pm
